Jia-Rey Chang – Ver-meer’s Colors – England/Taiwan
Ver-meer’s Colors is a generative art piece attempting to draw attention to the current severe issue of information bias. Whether it is traditional/new, mass/self-media, the Views First culture within the social network has created a vicious competition making sensational titles of content to gain more clicks. The audience thinks they know the complete picture of certain information by those titles, which is dangerous because people can be easily manipulated for one’s benefit.
