Heavenly Wind Laundromat
screenprint, 14 x 22.5"
July 2007


 What really happened: In Shanghai on May 15th a girl went to the sixth floor of a building to do her laundry. A strong wind caught her umbrella and lifted her off the building, but she held onto the umbrella. She drifted to the ground, landing in a vegetable garden hard enough to knock herself out and break a few bones, but she survived. “Heavenly Wind Laundromat” is the print inspired by the event.

Many thanks to scholar Carol Brash for translating Chinese included in the print.
