As we grow up, we are exposed to the outside world.Influenced by the universal values, we become fond of comparison unconsciously, fear of not being accepted by others so that we wrapped ourselves in layers upon layers of material property, and finally become a fragile shell, just like a paper man.
Through metaphorical shots and props, this work shows the process of this kind of “paper man” waking up in a fragile state,then covering himself with gaudy thing, just like boxes from online shopping piled higher and higher, finally, once hit, he unable to stand up. To express a negative energy that “paper people” are helpless and powerless under the influence of the environment.
I used four stages to express this work.
See: Express the acceptance of the prosperous environment of the city by using the quick clip of the images of tall buildings, vehicles and crowds in the city — The pace of city life is so fast that it can be overwhelming.
Comparison:The observation of a passer-by by means of an inverse display. Squint at the appearance of others to compare.
Temptation: With small sequins and pearls to represent the temptation of environmental substances, people lost in the water like fish.
Wrapping: The act of constantly wrapping oneself with superimposed substances.Use fish as a metaphor for insatiable greed, until finally dying out.
