Pink Psychic Shop 2021 This video is part of my Three or More Fish project (https://www.letterfromfish.com/). Inspired by the first peasant revolution in Chinese history, I use fish as the subject to discuss the manipulation of information and knowledge. People inserted messages inside a fish for forging and spreading an artificial prophecy. The fictitious belief led the uprising to a temporary victory. The text of the uprising history has been included as required reading for Chinese middle school since 1960. However, it was deleted in 2019 —— the same year when the Hong Kong protest raised public attention.
