    Now that the organisers have discovered the truth, then it becomes more compelling that they shoul not display these works!

    What crap about trying to evoke a response from the audience and the nonsense, so does that mean that if I turn up tomorrow, I can go slap the artists' faces, since it is their intention to illicit a response from their 'artwork', and i'm just responding to them lor.

    What crap!

    I would state that Tay and the collective duped the organizer.


    next catchline for the news broadcast...

    Photographers dupe organisers of exhibition showcasing 'art' works of fake schizophrenia patient.

    Well, its really sick... just for fame & glory, they not only make photographers look like cheaters, patients with schizophrenia sound like some joke, and makes a fool out of every one who have felt for the image...

    Damn, I've lodged my protest through the feedback form at the website!

    While I can't recall word for word, but here goes:

    "Dear Organisers,

    I've read with disgust that some of the photographs that is being exhibited at the exhibition Out of focus, which was purportedly taken by a schizoprhenic photographer, are actually untrue, that they were taken by a group of so called art photographers.

    While the photographs taken are of good standards, the same cannot be said about the integrity and ethics of those who have taken them.

    By falsely claiming that it was taken by someone who is not, is tantamount to misrepresentation and defrauding the public.

    On this ground, I urge you not to exhibit these photographs, or to remove them if you have already done so."

    Ok, something to that effect....

    ok, me got to go off for a while, will return after 10pm tonight...let's garner more views first before we try to summarise can?

    Btw, does ayone here put themselves into the shoes of those mentally ill? Just that they thought that they've found someone to highlight their plight, and to raise the awareness in the public, then the truth comes out...what you think these patients would feel?

    This is machiam like those who actually take advantage of the blind, let them go sell tissues at coffeshop and MRT, only to take a lion's share of the profit at the end of the day lor.

    Indeed this is exploitation!

    Actually there is one thread even earlier than the one mentioned many pages ago that also uncovered certain discrepancies in the photos.

    If the organiser chooses to go on. Maybe we can hold placards and walk around outside denouncing the event.

    These work, just serve to tell the public...

    1) do not trust what you see.
    2) do not trust any campaign.
    3) do not trust any photographers who tell you about art
