The idea of this internet work is to collect people's suggestions. With this method I hope to highlight the kind of 'supply and demand' relationship, which is often hidden in the international art exchange.
I use a suitcase not only because of its practical aspect, but also because it looks like a salesman's sample suitcase (and so hints to the 'buy and sell' relationship). I use a transparent suitcase, because this unusual and gets so many people's attention, the same situation for non-mainstream art (e.g. Chinese art) has in the mainstream art world.
Like that, Made... for you has its special features: the ideas are from the West, but it is manufactured in China. It shows a reasonable and incredible relationship at the same time (production on demand is a normal thing in the commercial world, but unbelievable in the art world).
Made... for you shows both sides: one side provides the stage and the visa, while the other makes a sample and a performance. Everybody does what the other needs. Communication under these circumstances would guarantee rewards.
