The I-Ching art installation is currently exhibited at the Opposite House hotel in Beijing, China. The exhibit includes 64 phrases from the ancient Chinese text, also known as ‘The Book of Changes,’ inscribed on black and white umbrellas. When the artist Huang Rui is in the hotel, guests are invited to stand with him in a circle holding the umbrellas to have a one-one-one exchange. The exchange may be spoken or silent depending on the artist’s mood. From above, the group of umbrellas look like the yin yang symbol, representing peace and harmony.
