Back in 1999, SHI Yong completed by internet a work entitled Please Choose the Best. He provided online a dozen of images of himself in various hairstyles and costumes and then posed a question: “in today's China, what kind of new image do you think can play an important role on the stage of international communications?” Participants voted to the image they supposed as the best option. And after this interactive programme, the image of the artist, with blond hair, sun glasses, Sun Yat-sen suit and briefcase was finally determined, which was later transformed into sculpture as The New Image of Shanghai Today in exhibition now.
