An auction house in Shanghai invited me to participate in one of their sales. So I sent an ad on the internet asking if anyone would be interested to come and applaud every time a piece were sold, whatever amount made from the sale would be split between participants. For security reasons, only 10 of the 140 people who applied were allowed to come. And when the time came to sell my artwork, the host told the buyers that the sound of applause around them was the next art piece to be sold. Buyers started bidding and the artwork sold for 5000RMB.
