Beginning on November 3, 2013, Ai Weiwei placed a bouquet of flowers in the bicycle basket outside of his studio. He took a picture and posted it on his social media. He vowed to continue this action each day until the Chinese authorities returned his passport. WITH FLOWERS lasted 600 days, concluding on July 22, 2015.
