Acclaimed Thai artist Surasi Kusolwong’s latest art installation, Golden Ghost (The Future Belongs to Ghost), invites audience members into a vast field of industrial thread waste to search for three gold necklaces planted by the artist. The audience member who is fortunate enough to find it, can keep the treasure. The day I visited, there were quite a few excited children looking. The work is playful as visitors climb through tonnes and tonnes of thread waste, while serving as a metaphor for excess consumption at both the global and individual level.
