This movie shows an installation by Chinese artist Ai Weiwei that features 1,005 life jackets from refugees in the shape of lotus flowers.
Entitled F Lotus, the installation features 201 rings – each with five life jackets worn by Syrian refugees – arranged into the shape of the letter F.
Each of the rings has either red, orange or blue life jackets and floats like a lotus blossom on the pond at the park of the Upper Belvedere, part of the Belvedere museum in Vienna.
Ai Weiwei created the installation as part of his continued campaign to raise awareness of the Syrian refugee crisis.
The artist set up a studio on the Greek island of Lesbos to highlight the plight of refugees and has produced a series of projects with themes related to the refugee crisis.
