I was 24 weeks pregnant on the 4th of Jan 2014.
I blew 200 balloons in duration of 3 hours. Audience are encouraged to take away of the red balloons as sign of sharing happiness. The audience were also invited to touch my pregnant belly. Inspired by Chinese custom “ Touch Blessing ”
There was hidden noise sensor, when their hand reaches my belly. They hear mixed sound of temple bell and my son’s heartbeats ( baby heart beats) ! This is a sensitive, peaceful and spiritual ceremony but based on trust.
This performance took place as part of GuangZhou Digitalive Exhibition.
“DigitaLive is an experiment and a fusion of what is live and digital. It takes place from November 30 2013 to January 26 2014 at the YouYou Contemporary Art Centre in Guangzhou showcasing art works of eight chinese and eight scandinavian contemporary artists.”
