My creation MUSIC BOX is an interactive installation. Judging from its external form, it looks like a coffin. This Music Box installs three piano legs, a rocker on the outside which links the inside part. The audience can shake the rocker to get the song THE INTERNATIONALE. My work mainly uses satirical and humorous ways to reveal the true metaphor behind the works. THE INTERNATIONALE represents communism. Many countries and scholars reckon that communism does not consistent with human development. History also tells us that communism does not die and it is bound to bring evil to mankind. Of course, to let the audience participate in my work, understand the true meaning of my work through interaction, and thus trigger different thinking of the audience have always been the idea of my work. Perhaps you think it's just a humorous instrument. Perhaps you think it's a horrible decoration. Or perhaps you think it's an ancient open brain surgery. What do you think?
