“Long Ma” – the French Mechanical Installation

1
A mechanical installation named “Long Ma” is operated at a rehearsal of the Long Ma performance in front of the National Stadium, also known as the Bird’s Nest, in Beijing October 10, 2014. “Long Ma”, a 17-meter (56-ft) long and 15-meter (49-ft) tall mechanized dragon sculpture, and “The Spider”, a 5.7-meter (19-ft) tall and 6-meter (20-ft) wide machine, are operated by French performance art company La Machine. The structures are operated by an automatic control system and electronic equipment. The performance, which combines Chinese culture and French art, will be held next week in Beijing in honour of the 50th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations between the two countries, an organiser of the event said.
