From a pair of computer screens in a lime green bedroom in Upper Manhattan, a 27-year-old man from China is working to bring about a popular uprising.

Two months after calls shot across the Web for a Tunisian- and Egyptian-style “Jasmine Revolution” in China, he is among the few online dissidents still trying to promote a popular protest movement inside the country.

There are hordes of politically motivated /gullible / salaried "dissidents" working 24/7 around trying to start a bonfire from a tiny spark. The provocations are more intense recently. China does not need any revolution for a social change! Any change in political / social reforms should be well calibrated, and should not be radical.

Time may tell if Ai Weiwei is purely rewarded for his political motives through his disguised art sales. Art has no fixed value and the price tag often defies the quality of the art piece.

Regardless. Ai is one lousy artist!
