On the floor of the Tate Modern, 100 million porcelain sunflower seeds, handmade in Jingdezhen, China. From artist Ai Weiwei: "If you tell them it is for an exhibition nobody really understands why you have to accept this... 'We really love your work and can you give us more work?'... It's going to be some kind of myth for the history of this town" (video, 14m41s).
