Chinese artist Ai Weiwei forced to shut webcam project

Beijing, Thu, 05 Apr 2012 ANI

Beijing, Apr 5 (ANI) : Chinese artist Ai Weiwei has been ordered to switch off his webcam installed to mark the anniversary of his 81 days in detention, following the political melt down by Chinese activists last year.

Ai said, "I don't even have a reason for why they put me away for 81 days.There's never clear, rational discussion."

Weiwei, who is currently fighting a tax evasion case, in which his design company, Fake Cultural Development Ltd., was linked to, had been put under detention, because of being highly vocal about the human rights issues in China, the BBC reports.

He installed webcams at his home, so as to allow his friends and family know about his movements during his detention. He described the webcam project as "a negotiation between private space, the public nature of security, and the power of the state", and said he tried to promote openness and transparency. (ANI)
