Issue + Research

With no freedom of the press, expression and speech, the #MeToo movement had a challenging start in China. Like many other hashtags on topics that were controversial, the Chinese government had censored #MeToo, blocking and taking down any content related to the movement. Stories shared by women and petitions made for the movement were regularly removed.

Women activists in China, however, found creative ways around the censorship. For example, the combination of the emojis for a bowl of rice (mi) and a rabbit (tu) were used as a hashtag to dodge the censors’ detection.

​Using my research, I began to develop visual motifs and installation concepts that would appropriately represent the issue while accomplishing my objective.
