Summary
"These days, the wave of globalization has penetrated every corner of the world. Identities become more and more blurred while many different social networks appear in our lives, such as Facebook. People use this website to create their own so-called invisible networks, refreshing the latest status of their friends', and their own as well. Within this fictitious world, it seems as if the labels "common" or "famous" both cease to exist, as everybody has the opportunity to become number one in this virtual community; anthing is possible and one could pretend to be anything and anyone, from a poet that lived hundreds of years ago, to even being a citizen of another country! There is no limit to identity, and the global village soon becomes a reality, populated by every range of individual, from fictional to genuine. In this work, I gathered some drawings that my students had made in class, while others were taken from the masterpieces of several famous artists. When I put these drawings together, one cannot differentiate whether they are the product of famous artists or students, made several centuries ago, or just last week. It becomes just as Andy Warhol said: 'In the future, everybody will get their fifteen minutes of fame.'."--Leilei Guo, from description sheet
