Ai Weiwei

I admire Ai Weiwei's work for the following reasons: 1.) the size and 2.) the complexity and thought behind each piece he decides to create. This gigantic paper Chinese Dragon exhibited at the Alcatraz Federal Penitentiary offers a powerful message embedded within each colorful scale that is represented with quotes/symbols from 30+ countries regarding the struggle for human rights and civil liberties. I think that Ai Weiwei's work stands out because his views on society and activism are translated within his installments.
