Artist and activist Ai Weiwei is no stranger to political art. His 2008 piece “Cube Light” is, deceptively, just one of many examples. Essentially a chandelier, ‘Cube Light’ is shimmering , lovely and ridiculously large. It’s size focuses on the idea of overstated luxury and inflates to such proportions as to be laughable – how useful is a lamp when it takes up the entire room?
