From Ming to Bling

I don’t even know how I got on their mailing list (maybe I handed them a business card at a party) - if it’s spam or not — but BURB magazine has been sending me e-mail ever since Beijing and I noticed the photos this time. BURB offers an artistic viewpoint and creative thinking about Beijing.

The Games are half way done. The world has watched in awe. Beijing’s air is clean, crisp even, after a day of rocket triggered rainfall. A picture perfect moment of national pride and peacefulness; all kept in check by 300,000 new surveillance cameras recently installed. But what is the impact on the Chinese society? Can this projected self-image become a lasting reality, like a self-fulfilling prophecy? Or, when the smog rolls back over Beijing, will a increasingly demanding population take a stand? This month events highlight the “society under construction.”
