Exhibited: Xu Bing, Chinese Arts Centre, Manchester
Materials: Metal cages, motion sensors, fake birds.

Letters are connected to form a cage of words. The words are questions that people have asked Xu Bing about art, and his answers. Inside the cages are toy birds that are able to revolve and emit sound. When visitors make noises, the birds will respond with a bird's song.
