Having recently returned from a spell of travelling, everyone’s favorite dissident artist Ai Weiwei has uncovered what appears to be hidden surveillance equipment while renovating his home in Beijing.
Ai Weiwei, who has been making the most of his new found freedom after recently having his passport returned to him following four years of confiscation, found the devices while making alterations to his work room.
He apparently has also found devices in his bedroom and said that the installation had been done in a very professional manner, speculating that the devices have been in place for several years.
Still in good spirits, Ai posted to Instagram a short video of him taunting his listening audience with firecrackers.
After a period of relative inactivity, Ai recently shot back into the public spotlight, opening a new exhibition at London’s Royal Academy and taking selfies with WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange.
