BALANCE SCALE

Chung Yi Chan Scale

My project is about discrimination in our society. Discrimination is caused by prejudice. Although race, gender and age etc. might be different, our human right is the same. Why people need to be placed on the scale just like an object. This is one of the reasons for I choose to use ordinary object to represent different kinds of prejudice.

This project was inspired by the prejudice towards homeless. I saw some experimental video on YouTube that people show the indifference to homeless. It makes me think about how an individual value can be valued; who do we think we are; how a sense of supremacy constitutes actions which hurt the others? This project is regarded as my philosophy questioning and reflecting human values and inequality.
