Chinese artist Ai Weiwei carpeted the floor of the Turbine Hall with 100 million porcelain seeds and invited the public to walk across them.

Not quite Eco Art related, but I did want to share my new Etsy store, Futility, Ltd.
Right now, I’ve got a bunch of bourbon bottles, porcelain duckies and lucky cat ducks. More to come soon.
