"Attention Induced Observant Euphoria" (注意力诱发感应性兴奋感)
// BLURB //
Life suddenly feels easier after the struggles of a hard week in my favorite dim sum place. It’s past midnight and I’m sitting here having a bowl of indefinably delicious something and staring into the abyss of tomorrow. Just for a change, I look through the faces of strangers I once knew. Traveling, married, children, cats… I wish they were looking at me, too. In Korea, they call it Muk-bang or eating broadcasts, when they consume ridiculous amounts of food, kind of Andy Warhol style, you know, “My name is Andy Warhol and I just finished eating a hamburger”. Twenty seconds of unpacking, fifteen seconds of preparation, two minutes and twenty seconds of eating, forty-five seconds of packing up and a minute of staring into pure air, filmed and made eternal. He knew it was going to happen to all of us, right? That we were going to be broadcasted and consumed everywhere just like my dim sum, a hamburger, or bulgogi. It is human nature. And as I’m sitting here staring blankly, I realize that I’m no worse than Andy, no worse than any kind of nobody. And life suddenly feels easier.
