This drawing symbolizes our increasingly myopic society in a world where we are sheltered behind the screens of social media. In Hong Kong, selling betta fish in small, compacted containers is common; they are sold daily on the streets. Betta fish can survive in enclosed spaces, and often fight when put together. The fish symbolize people and our hesitance to go beyond the familiar. The jarring yet colorfully stunning picture depicts my observation of the strange reality we live in. By drawing this piece, I explore ideas of vulnerability and challenging ourselves to step outside of our comfort zone.
