In addition, the hotel is treating guests and visitors to an art installation, specifically for the new year. The 12 hanging scrolls of “Day After Day” by Qin Feng, each 26 feet long, "feature bold and energetic red and black brushstrokes composed of Chinese ink painted with a large flat Western brush on custom-made paper." There's twelve to obviously represent the months of the year, but the meaning goes much deeper: "The lines are meant to illustrate the ways in which life and society diverge through a variety of conflicts and contradictions, such as love and strife, desire and reality, but inevitably re-emerge together in harmony."
The art will be on display at the Opposite House until February 20, so there's no rush, but the best time to visit is of course later this week, when the meaning rings truest.
