I spend a lot of my time in Asia and have met quite a few fu er dai turned "modern art collectors". The ones I met were a very sad sight. And the feeding frenzy around them was very often nauseating.

I have always thought Olafur Eliasson was Danish / Icelandic (born in Copenhagen to Icelandic parents) not Swedish as BBC states. I still remember his sun installation at Tate Modern's Turbine Hall, it was awesome.
