"An Empty Hole Invites The Wind" is a virtual burial of a contemporary "Mingqi/ 明器 : 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.
