My work is inspired by the Cantonese term gaau, which not only translates to the word plastic but is also a slang term used to describe people as idiotic. Even though this term is often vulgar, it is widely used by teenagers to tease each other. Gaau can also modify many other nouns, such as questions, performances, and actions. To respond to the theme, It’s a Plastic World, I decided to take my photo in a bathroom as they imply privacy, just as people sing while showering. My subject bathes with plastic in a bathtub as she enjoys her own world; she is a teenager stupidly playing with a plastic cup. My image is an exploration of how gaau is used by combining its literal and slang meanings. To emphasize these two sides, I layered gaau on top of my photograph to help viewers comprehend this term’s duality.
