Cai Guo Qiang «The Oxford Comet: Project for Extraterrestrials No. 17» 1993.
«In my hometown every significant social occasion of any kind, good or bad - weddings, funerals, the birth of a baby, a new home, is marked by the explosion of fireworks. They even use fireworks when they elect Communist party officials, or after someone delivers a speech. Fireworks are like the town crier, announcing whatever's going on in town.» ~ Cai Guo-Qiang.
