-IDEA LEAPING Into The FUTURE-
One of the translators took Gotz, Husam and I to Hot Pot dinner, she wanted us to meet her class mates. It was the end to a great day after we had seen our sculptures placed in the new high-Tech development Park. We had a wonderful evening and the wonderful company of these lovely ladies. They showed the three of us the techniques used in preparing tasty HotPot and returned us back to the hotel safe and sound.

After a bit of rest from the late night train ride from Beijing back to Changchun, last years group of artists had an appointment with Mr. Fan Tao to visit the Car Park. I would have a chance to see the stone piece and more importantly the cast bronze "Auto pod" and see if it had been displayed correctly.
Close, but, not quite. What did I expect, the foundry workers really messed it up, it is a bit backward and the little cars are facing to the back and it should be on a stone base. However they did a great job on the patina (surface color), outstanding!!!
