Two artists, Xu Sheng and Wu Yumo, happened to be in Argentina and Iceland respectively during the same period of time; therefore the two co-authored a work named "Collecting Sunshine". While Yumo was enduring the cold and short daylight in the North, Sheng was travelling in South America, from Cuba to Peru, Chile to Argentina, where the sunlight is the strongest. The two artists collected sunshine during this period every day, using local "container" objects, such as boxes, cups, sunscreen bottles, film canisters, Inca Cola cans and any local souvenir that has a container. Photo paper is used to "collect the sunlight" and to record the different shapes of the "container" on the paper. Due to the different latitude and longitude of the two areas, the intensity of UV light differs, which left "shadows" of different shades and shapes. The two artists, one in the North and the other in the South, experiencing summer and winter at the same time, treasures and tolerates sunshine at the same time. The concept of collecting “sunshine” with these “containers” is used to accomplish an ultimate “Polar Dialogue”.
