Elephant Cart is composed of a wooden elephant, a Buddha and a red cart filled with stacks of TV sets, radios, gramophone speakers, etc. Each of the elephant’s four legs iis placed on a four-wheeled dolly and the Buddha sitting in a plastic chair is holding an Adidas white-and-yellow umbrella. The elephant is tethered with red electric cords to the cart filled with TV sets and radios would move because it is attached to the elephant on the dollies, which has some analogy to the process of information spreading. In this age of speed when everything is rapidly changing, the combination of objects of the past and new media makes you not only look back on the past, bou also reconsider how communication is working today.
