Easy Life : Yao Jui-Chung Solo Exhibition
During the epidemic, most people stayed at home for a long time, feeling depressed and anxious. Life is nothing more than spending time on the Internet and video games, cuddling pets, ordering takeout for a great meal, or trying camping, barbecuing and rafting. We wear masks and live as if we’d be alone for the rest of our lives.
The sudden rise of the Metaverse has made us eager to keep up with the latest investment trends. People even flock to the exhibition to see what hell looks like, but what’s the point of following the craze for bizarre selfies? Under the pandemic, we often feel lonely, empty, and envy. Savings shrank quickly, but life goes on. Staring at the screen day and night, searching on Google for everything, the Russia-Ukraine War is still going on, the stock market is frightening, and excessive use of 3C products increases the risk of presbyopia and macular lesions. The world is still strange, but under the addiction of mobile phone, everything around life seems phantom. When life is difficult, only dreams are the happiest place.
