Fast revolving clock on top of the Shanghai Art Museum

XU Zhen created a work "Dang Dang Dang Dang" for 2004 Shanghai Biennale in which he reconstructed one of the four clocks in the bell tower of Shanghai Art Museum. The clock ran 60 times faster, which symbolized the rapid growth of the city and also let us beware of the wild pace—maybe we should slow down.
