"South Bund Saunter" (在南外滩闲逛)
"South Bund Saunter" by island6 Art Collective (Liu Dao)
// BLURB //
Let’s go to my favorite restaurant it’s right around the corner of Duojia Road, and before you ask, I'll tell you what we’re having for dinner tonight. Just sit back, and prepare for a feast for the eyes (and the mind!) We will begin with the hors d'oeuvre, small fried bits of curiosity served with a watchful hoisin dipping sauce. Our soup of the day is roasted inquisitiveness seasoned with evidence and just a dash of mala pepper. The main course is honey glazed playfulness with a side of jolly. For dessert we have chocolate covered creativity with a strawberry jelly filling. Do you prefer coffee or oolong tea? No need to rush, take your time ping ponging between the two. This is a new take on ‘TV dinner’ I hope you can appreciate the effort, not everyone can. Artist Nam June Paik was a firm believer in the power of television and was sure it could have a spiritual dimension. In what he called “Participation TV” (1969), creator and audience come together and can experience and create art that approaches a transcendent state, much like his work “TV Buddha” (1974), which intersects spirituality and technology. We interrupt your regularly scheduled programming to bring you this breaking news, dinner was absolutely scrumptious.
