"An Empty Hole Invites The Wind" is a virtual burial of a contemporary "Mingqi”, Spirit Article, a miniature Dyson hairdryer which constantly breezes vitality into an unsealed tomb site on the cliff.

*Mingqi/ 明器 refers to burial objects made especially for the deceased. Traditionally, a mingqi has to be made in accordance with the form of the real-life object and verisimilitude is stressed. But it has to be purposefully non-functional, which is usually achieved by deliberate reconfiguration of size, material and technique.
