'And So On'
Stella Chin-Ting Yang 楊謹庭 / Martyn Riley
Iconic speeches sometimes can be useless or not helpful in terms of what the speaker demands. However powerful the speech is, it doesn't really make much difference after it is given - it has significance, but no improvement in the situation. Sometimes people get radicalized not because they want violence, rather, it’s a result of that no one cares when they are nice and polite. I recognised the agony in those speeches, and try to eliminate the subject or nouns that specify what the original speech mentioned – to show how these speeches share the same fierce and frustration.
