Trent Gilliss admires the latest installation at the Tate Modern by Chinese artist Ai Weiwei:

Chinese artist Ai Weiwei’s latest installation at the Tate Modern is an incredible feat: one hundred million hand-painted pieces of porcelain that resemble the shells of sunflower seeds. 

Sadly, they have stopped letting visitors walk across the sculpture due to dust.
