A Defence of the Poor Image

The text I chose mainly discusses what is a poor image, and my understanding of poor image is that in the process of information or image transmission in different routes like verbal expression and translation, the original meaning or matter is constantly lost, but the new concept and new content would be created by people through these incomplete information.

My work mainly includes posters and videos which are about how to interpret this incomplete information. My understanding of poor image, I chose the transcript of feminist speeches and simulated the process of information transmission. I listened to the audio of the transcript, then wrote down what I caught, finally I turned words into shapes based on the words I heard. The posters are a display of the shapes I created, and the videos will be combined with audio, to restore the original information through rewind.
