As we grow up, we are more concerned about people’s expectations and how people look at us. We are too afraid of being different, afraid of making mistakes and rejected by the others. We never believe in ourselves, we only improve ourselves and be the kind of person whom others want us to be.
In my work, I tried to illustrate my ideas on a little girl who is trying to uncover the cloth printed with words that blinded her. The words are reflecting different moral values and judgments from others. In life, rumours are just words passing verbally around others, it is not possible for us to change ourselves just to follow their footsteps. Sometimes it is not a bad thing to be different, it only means that we are brave enough to be ourselves.
