Utopia in Dystopia:
"In Asian culture, people are more group-centric and less individually focused. It is believed that the public 's collective view is superior to any individual's opinion in both cultures, people with 'abnormal' behavior or psychiatric disorders are often stigmatized stereotyped, discriminated against, and threatened by society. Yet in a group-centric society, being seen as different is a large problem than in an individualistic society, and as such, these people can suffer from conditions of self-absement and self-doubt, further perpetuating the discord" -- Qieer Wang
The work is a way to present the idea that the 'illness' needs to be undertood and knowledged; people who suffer from the disorders should be respected and themselves approaching the energy in a different way and perhaps, transforming them into values that futher express their individualities that could not otherwise.
