From afar this sculpture looks like a balloon-shaped baby with a broad grin, but on closer examination it is an adult male dressed in suit and tie. The person is flying but he has only a pair of tiny wings. How far will he go? Gao uses this artwork to spur us to think about the many big dreams of city folks and the realisation of these dreams. Viewers and their dreams are reflected in the highly polished body of the work.
