Photo Description:
Its a multimedia art piece. There's a video clip which shows how struggle the people are and also a audio which recorded the complaint of the others inside the "ear box" and "mouth box" respectively. People used to determine how much love they received by counting how many materialistic things they have got from their family, lover or friends; but not focus on the quality of love like the care from them. Apart from that, people like to compare this with others. Unfortunately, this can make them feel depressed sometimes. However, they don't usually talk about this or express their thoughts to the others, just like the others in my sbas: the lack of communication just worsen the situation, aggravating their misunderstandings. I made the two boxes to represent ‚Äúlisten‚ÄĚ and ‚Äúspeak‚ÄĚ. So if you want to appreciate the art piece then you have to interact with it, which symbolizing ‚Äúcommunication‚ÄĚ. And at the end you will see how the spontaneous attitude could change your life.
