Zhao Bandi and his panda were invited to London for a one month residency in 2003 to produce a series of works inspired by their experiences in Britain. Bandi created a video and a series of photographs with captions.

The Manchester Art Gallery, the Ikon Gallery in Birmingham and Aspex Gallery in Portsmouth as well as the London Underground were showing his work simultaneously during the summer of 2004 in a series of off-site shows (billboards and banners) and gallery-based exhibitions.
