Wuhan Ecological Art Park is a place frequented by an illegal pyramid scheme organization. The salesperson would lead a tour and give random meanings to the public sculptures in order to persuade the public to join their organization. The artist interrupted the tour with similarly or even more absurd acts, such as talking to a bronze figure. The salesperson was freaked out by Zhu’s performance and left. Zhu then took over and told a story to the crowd about the battles between the real estate and East Lake, rise of central China, Capitalism, and the desire for success.
