Aerosol Spray, camera, and more
On October, 29, 1994, Wang as well as his companions arrived at the wall next to the North entrance of the Forbidden City in Beijing. The artist then applied an aerosol spray (the spray itself is a pesticide named "闯入者" ("intruder")) upon the wall in front on them, writing in English "WE LOVE YOU", three times consecutively. However, as the artist turned to his back for a brief while, the words printed by the aerosol rapidly dissipated, leaving only the repugnant smell of the pesticide.
