Project 1: The Erosion of Media Integrity
Profit Over Truth in Modern Journalism
Readers become indifferent to fake news. They think that the content of the news are not relevant to them and therefore choose to ignore it. However, their consent to the fake news had made themselves to be new fake makers. Such phenomena become a strange accepted manner over time.
In order to illustrate the idea, I have drawn four sets of pictures reflecting the theme of public participation in making fake news.
1. Every piece of news on
the newspaper or webside
was carefully designed and
edited by the maker.
2. The public enjoy reading gossip, so the media
switches its focus to such unimportant things,
making some small things that are not news
eventually become hot news.
3. What is advertised and what is shot on
location are often very different.But
no one dvisputes the AD itself when it
arrives at the actual location.
4. Some of the news has been deliberately
processed. The audience is just like
Schrödinger's cat, who can never know to
what extent the news are true.
Project 2 : Victims of the City
The development brought about by urbanization is not all favorable. The security check of the Beijing subway is a very typical example. The body checks and X-ray inspection of personal belonging are considered as an intrusion of privacy by many people. Yet everyone chooses to accept the practice and enter the subway silently because they know that it is for the greater goods. Nevertheless, such an incident does not end within the subway station. There are also numerous security cameras guarding each and every corner of the city 24/7. Ordinary people always need to compromise in order to receive the opportunities brought by big cities, which is also the theme I want to express: the sacrifices of ordinary people under the gorgeous outlook of urban development.

This kind of protection is just
another form of violation.
2. When the city develops to a certain stage, it will require social citizens with higher quality. The easiest way to make it happen is to drive out outsiders with various draconian policies.
3. Illegal immigration. In order to get a chance to
live and work in a big city, people tolerate to
be transported like goods.
4. In the development of urbanization, the
interests of the majority are often sacrificed to
support a small number of privileged classes.
