read about the whole thing last night, even though i saw the hoax report, the pictures still give alot of feelings because of the deliberate sequence, accompanying words and music. their art gets an ''F'' from me though, for misrepresentation. they misrepresented the schizophrenic in the name of art, very bad artists if they are any. it's too superficial to judge art by the surface, giving it a good appraisal based on presentation. art ultimately carries intention as all other creations of Man, the intention of this set of pictures was to show the public the world of the schizophrenic, but they are nothing more than romanticised misrepresentations set to fool the eyes of the public.
some people from NTU also happen to uncover the fact that these pictures were doctored
for lack of a better example, this is like fabricating a painting, saying the painting is done by Vincent van Gogh when he suffered mental illness, and exhibiting it to raise people's awareness of mental illness.
I didn't like the photos, and definitely not taken in by the website to believe the hoax. It's actually quite reprehensible that some arty wankers decide to use schizophrenia, and yeah it's more depression, to forward some agenda.
now it seems to me that there might be a possible chance that these clowns are caught with their pants down and in a mad bid to hide it all, they say that it is an art concept and that it is all "done to draw more attention to their clause".
who knows they might be ready to go along with the xiao kang story? they even got the petition stuff going... and it seems to me that they might be prepared to play out the whole story until some smart CSers and undergrads noticed the many tell-tale signs?
