Why Do We Wear Makeup / social change

Why Do We Wear Makeup
Why Do We Wear Makeup

Something funny is frequently heard in Taiwan about social network application: None cares about someone's original personal profile image, but he or she may get a plenty of invitations if they change the photo by a foreigner one. The phenomenon is ridiculous, so I use triangle patches to build a typical westerner's face so as to express the vagueness in reality.Meanwhile, the eyes are changed into genitals, because human beings are animals produce sex drive visually. Under the aim to remind modern people that preconceived ideas shouldn't keep a strong hold. Instead we should remove any of prejudice and face the world by oneself, truly.
