During the 2011 Hong Kong/Shenzen Biennial, Ghana ThinkTank assembled an octagonal wooden tube meant to be a knock-off of a pneumatic fender for a shipping freighter, clad in 32 chained tires.
Each tire had a screen with videos of Chinese citizens voicing their problems. On the tail end, visitors were able to add their own problems through a video booth. The pod was surrounded by satellites that presented Ghana ThinkTank’s work in other cities.
This project provided an anonymous way to discuss the issues Chinese citizens face today, in a country where speaking out politically can have serious repercussions.
