After arriving in Shanghai, Geng JianYi collected almost 500 used articles in three days, exclusively from people he knew in Shanghai; including furniture, toys, kitchen appliances, bedroom settings and garments. Each article was labeled, specifying its history and its relation with the owner. Geng JianYi arranged them into four groups. He declared that only after the show, would these articles become truly useless.
