"Seats for Seeing" was installed in Beikeng village, Yanping district in Fujian province, China, at the end of November 2019. The work was part of the Yanping Art Harvest, running from 30 November 2019 to 29 February 2020. Since then the work exists as a public work of art.

The project reflects the local historical heritage, by adapting the region’s traditional window design into a larger-scale participatory environment that encourages social interaction and communication. Seats for Seeing thus function as a vast window whose ever-evolving pattern is created by the participants’ interactions and the swirling furniture overseeing the landscape of Beikeng village.
