Imagine when a child first learning the name of the objects from books and learning materials, he or she will totally believe the information that taught. I realised this phenomenon frequently happens on the social media while the adolescents tend to believe all the things shown in the internet without digging out the truth. As an adult, we are supposed to educate the young people to be able to think critically and seek the truth, unfortunately we ironically tried to brainwash them, or trying to hide and distort the truth in our own benefit.
#truth intends to debate how social media distorts the truth and mislead our next generations. it consists of a series of 1960s ladybird children learning cards, yet the images do not coordinate to the vocabularies dictated. The use of the hashtag demonstrates a new language that has revolutionized how we communicate and categorize content in social media platforms. We cannot underestimate the popularity of hashtags on social media, sadly it is inevitable to see how people using hashtags incorrectly that lead the users to irrelevant topics or conversations.
A crossover with 1960s illustration and 21st century social media language, I aim to demonstrate the change of how we perceive the knowledge with the introduction of social media era.
