THE CHILDREN OF ARCADIA's installation @ Sunshine Art Museum

Here's an image of The Children of Arcadia's installation at the Sunshine Art Museum in Beijing. Unfortunately we were unable to project the work because of skylights in the museum. We were quite pleased with the final installation. The show runs until November 30, there's still time.......
