Life Thoughts

We are in an era of rapid development. Technology and the internet have made our lives more intelligent. As we grow up and have more experience, as we travel to more countries and meet more people, we shall have more insights into life. Artist Yunyao talks about her ideas on folk beliefs, religion and influencer culture.

One Influencer's Talk
video

2020

1'29''

One Ukrainian female internet influencer who doesn't understand the Islamic culture is using mandarin to explain the meaning of Middle Eastern women's dress code. She didn’t say these words on her youtube channel where Middle East ladies can see. Very selectively, she posted these kinds of things on Chinese applications. Her speech largely misguided a large number of Chinese netizens, especially her followers and people who have never been to the Middle East and to know the Islamic Culture. Her video reminds me of those things online which is the opposite of China. And how foolish people became online in this Influencer Era.

 

On the other hand, this Ukrainian influencer’s words are full of prejudice and discrimination. I’m not a feminist but I admire how western ladies fight for their rights. However, this western lady is saying something bad about Muslim women without any knowledge of the Islamic culture. Maybe women should treat women equally first, then ask for the same rights as men.

 

Furthermore, Asian women and Middle Eastern Muslim women are often discriminated against. Sadly, there are some Chinese ladies who are following this western lady with her poor personal knowledge of Muslim Women. How ironic!

Cling Wrap is transparent and we can see things through it very clearly. It is soft, but it’s also difficult to tear when pulled. This is the material that I feel is the best symbol to represent the woman. I hope the audience can think more about woman’s rights, racial discrimination, and influencer culture from this video. I am also looking forward to seeing the audience be a part of the cling wrap to keep this world fresh.
