Resting Brick Count


Caochangdi, China / 2009


Research Project

4474012360mLvY.png

In the fall of 2009, Caochangdi, an urban village on the Northeast outskirts of Beijing known for its dense array of art galleries as well as Ai Weiwei designed artist lofts, anticipated the possibility of being razed to the ground. The government tentatively planned to replace the village with wide shopping malls and slick super structures, in no small part due to the subversive acts of the artist community which lived, worked and exhibited there. Knowing that if the village were to be razed they would be compensated handsomely for their loss, landowners were building three-story brick apartment blocks at an impossible pace. On October 01, 2009, there were still 1,130,707 bricks laying in wait. When used, these bricks became approximately 25 apartment buildings.
