With the rapid evolvement of the internet, people’s cognition and understanding of various viewpoints have become more polarized. Due to the revolution of information transmission, influencers dominate all sorts of ideologies. Filter bubbles constrain people’s perspectives and make people more unitary and assertive. Groups hold divergent attitude cannot accommodate dissenting voices, which may easily lead to binary opposition. Except for the hostile between the polarization of society, the middle group will suffer more persecution. It will cause hurt and frustration. “The concept made me relate to the chessboard, which has a clear distinction between black and white. I consolidated this imagery with the concept and transformed it into directional trapezoids. Black and white areas are representing the concept of binary opposition. The triangular areas stand for the middle group. I fragmented a part of trapezoids to create a rhythmically visual effect” tell us Chun-Ta.
