five walls. five walls. five walls five walls five walls like stonehenge.

we were lost, rolling through da shanzi neighborhood, the overly commercialized art district in beijing, trying to find the address, when the bullhorn in the backseat made its way into my hands.  i was timid at first, but grew comfortable quickly, using it to call out to people on the streets, waiting at a bus stop or bicycling along side the car.  i’d call out ridiculous things, banalities, egged on by the others in the car.

excuse me, do you know the time?  so sorry to trouble you, but we’re looking for the artists.  have you eaten yet? we seem to have lost our way.  do you know, where are the artists?  say, what about that obama guy? so where are the artists?  we’ve lost our way.
