    i don't know them, and i think what they did was an insult to the art community.

    no idea if the motive was to get works exhibited. but from this post

    He added that the group decided to come clean because Silver Ribbon a group that promotes awareness of mental illness in Singapore, wanted to exhibit Wu's 'work'.
    true or not i dunno...only they know. not for me to judge.

    2. the "works" of the dead character are in no way a mockery to the less fortunate

    let's put it this way. if from the very start the photographers had explicitly stated that the character was fictional, i don't think many would have taken issue with pt 2. so it all boils down to pt 1. ppl are upset cos they got fooled.
    well, remember i said this morning about your perception becomes what i deem as depression instead?

    If they really had gone thru and understand what these patients went thru, they would not have done such a clip. I mean, no schizophrenia patient will go do such a thing...

    Actually time to go home, but just share abit...

    Schizophrenia patients are often 'living' in their own world, with different degree of departure, and the type of stimulus they perceive. Some will have visual perception of perhaps spiderwebs forming out of their mouth, then keep trying to remove them... or hands is always dirty so keep washing (could be OCD as well)... others like auditory, the most common, hearing voices...

    But i don't think they would do such a thing like go to the building to jump... its too far fetched... a very extreme point of delusion.

    Our hope is to bring them back to the society... instead... how is this going to do that? To let the public understand more... well, dun fake a schizo when dunno what is schizo...

    yeah like i said it was a long shot!

    ur view is that pple are sore becos they were fooled. u tend to take this lightly, perhaps even u urself were fooled but u are able to go, yeah no worries, move on.

    we're talking about more than just a prankster and a victim. at least i am. back a few pages i really do think this is a disgrace to our local photographic community among other things (like sensationalising everythign to get published, or the possibility of insulting the less fortunate). i guess perhaps i'm very much in the photographic community therefore i take offence and am affected by more than just "i was duped and my ego is hurt". i really feel this brings a bad name to photographers. remember the fiasco with reuters manipulating images and the slack they got? this is the same. the photographers reported the images as the truth, while they might not be reuters, alot of pple believed them, and most probably because they probably couldn't conceive that any humane person would make this up!

    so i guess we stand on different grounds?

    and.. sorree for the long shot again lol!

    dun think so much...each of us have enough troubles of our own than to get upset of this. they call it conceptual art, you call it something else. at the end of the day life goes on.

    Likewise, i also wonder why you are not requesting from ST to give a proper apology for the misrepresentation of your point of view and statement. For most common folks here, most would deem the newspaper report as the truth than your one sided rebuttal without rectification.

    Being framed for duping others is quite a harsh allegation, reputation at stake...
    yes it is a harsh allegation. ST Life! never said that. fstop did. Life! can do a follow-up if they wish to, but that is their decision, not mine. Much as I dislike some of the writing, I still believe in letting journalists (famous, infamous, rookie, lao jiao, local or otherwise) do their job.

    and we also dunno if any of them will. most of us dunno how they think or how they feel. we can only try to imagine. but the reality is probably worse than what we imagine.

    well, then now we have a super long throw of protectionism... haha...

    they already said theirs is the visual kinda schizophrenia... now u say its auditory... so they catch the cue, and they will change their music to Jump by Kriss Kross?

    All they could do is come clean in the 1st place that its a fictional analysis of a schizophrenia patient, information from various (unknown) sources (probably TV, movie, and their own make belief)

    i just add one short one hor

    reuters and even national geographic have to be very strict on this cos they are in the business of selling their publications. they cannot afford to fool their audience with fake photos and stories.

    on the other hand, the xiaokang website was, as kaychin said, tucked away in the internet waiting for someone to stumble on it and pass the the word along. ithey did not attempt to solicit funds for xiaokang right? so if they didn't then i consider this as just a prank.

    life goes on of course. but your descriptions about people who showed concerned over this issue is unfair and uncalled for. if you think it's none of your concerns, why do you bother?

    they started a petition drive. and went on to describe the lie as necessary in their newspaper interviews. if they are artists, they know the limits art can bring them to, obviously they've stepped out of their limits.

    hey guys (DCA and madmacs) i'm not sure how well u know the condition, but perhaps no need to go further on the topic u guys are discussing? we can never fully understand them and speculating in a rather (or seemingly) joking fashion isn't gonna help...?
