How does the vernacular visual language speak about disparities in China and across the globe? How does the typographic landscape around factories bring awareness to the cultural and socioeconomic gap between production and consumption?

On Being A Factory Worker is my MFA thesis exhibition that hopes to bring forward the disordered but lively visual landscape surrounding Chinese factory workers. It is designed to be "anti-designed" through a vibrant clashing color palette, and a joyful, messy, overloaded usage of typography. It also hopes to touch upon difficult questions about labor wages, rights of female workers, as well as identity transference.
