Ai Weiwei's Sunflower Seeds, consists of 100 million hand painted porcelain seeds, which fill 1/3 acre room in the Tate Modern Gallery. The installation was intended to be interactive, allowing viewers to walk through, lay in, and play with the realisticly created seeds. Weiwei employed 1600 people from the small Chinese city, Jingdezhen, known for their skillfullness in imperial porcelain craft, to create the individual pieces, which have political meaning for the artist. Sunflower seeds are a common snack on the streets of China, but the seeds are reflective of the propaganda posters during the Cultural Revolution, which showed Chairman Mao as the sun and the mass of people as sunflowers turning towards him. Weiwei was named one of Time Magazine's People of the Year and the Art Review named him the art world's most powerful figure.
