gardens.

After four and a half days of climbing, he reached Mount Everest, the highest peak

 

in the world, and he placed one of his sculptures.

   

2003/2005

His interest in stainless steel can be seen in his Urban Landscape series where

 

the cities of  Beijing, London, Chicago and San Francisco are made up of

 

thousands of stainless steel kitchen ustensils and tableware.

Supported by Louis Vuitton, he started My Personal Universe :a project in which

 

he imitated the process of the formation of the universe by blowing up a rock.

 

The pieces are picked up and then recreated in stainless steel and rearranged

 

according to the way they fell, with the video of the explosion of the rock in slow

 

motion in the background.
