The Beast Floral Shop, an avant-garde flower shop in Shanghai, contributes two walls of flowers that are made into the shape of a book, named Kiss Book. Artifacts of bees and butterflies are installed among the blossoms, kissing the flowers. The work represents love and harmony in nature.

Architect Ma Ke creates a Kiss Bridge with transparent acrylic boards and ceramic fishbowls. Bridges are often spots for dating lovers in traditional Chinese folklore and the goldfish in the bowls are witnesses of the lovers' kisses.

In the south plaza, an 18-meter-high interactive tree-shaped light installation encourages people to kiss. Each kiss activates a light sequence, reminding audiences of their sweet childhood memories of kisses and embraces.

At the side of the tree is a counter, in which each kiss is counted and represents a donation to charity organizations.


10 am - 10 pm, until Dec 31. Shanghai Xintiandi Style Mall, 245 Madang Lu (Road), Huangpu district, Shanghai. 021-5382-0666.
