My respect for Chinese Artist, and social justice icon, Ai Weiwei just continues to grow. His newest project continues to push at the Chinese government’s power over it’s people.

(CBS News) BEIJING – The Chinese government is a voyeur. At least that’s what Chinese artist Ai Weiwei is trying to prove.

Tuesday marks the one year anniversary of the day police locked Ai up for 81 days. To commemorate his arrest, the renowned artist and designer of the 2008 Bird’s Nest Olympic stadium installed four cameras in his home so that anyone on the web can monitor his movements, 24-hours a day.

The project symbolizes his time in detention, Ai tells CBS News. The artist remains heavily monitored after being charged for tax evasion linked to Fake Cultural Development, a company owned by his wife. –cbsnews.com

“How can a country like this expect every citizen to be transparent, be under surveillance?” wonders Ai. “I think this is not beneficial for social stability and the country’s development.” -Ai Weiwei
