Leilei Guo: Nowadays the wave of globalization has
penetrated every corner of the world.
It connects the globe more and more closely, and it imposes influence on every citizen in
the global village. Identity becomes more and more blurred while many different social
networks appear, such as Facebook. People use this web site to create their own so-called
invisible network, refreshing their friends latest status and updating
their own as well. In
this fictitious world it seems like famous or common people do not exist. There is no
identity, it becomes a globe village. In this work, I picked up some drawings that my
made in class, and others from famous artists masterpieces. When I put these
together we cannot differentiate which were made by artists or students, which were made
centuries ago or now. Just as Andy Warhol said, In the future, everybody will be
famous for 15 minutes.
