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 limit to
identity, it becomes a globe village. In this work, I picked up some drawings that my students
made in class, and others from famous artists’ masterpieces. When I put these drawings
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 world
famous for 15 minutes.”
