A deep, shallow "chat"
At the 11th lecture of?the Meeting the Intellectuals in the Spring Hills Lecture Series, Director Lam started a chat which?is?relaxing, amusing and thought-provoking.
As WeChat dominates most of our daily communication, in this face-to-face chat with Director Lam, he revealed that the reason modern people are scared to chat, is actually due to the fear of being found. It seems to be a paradox that we hope to be understood, but at the same time, we are afraid of it.
It has already been a phenomenon of “together alone”. Taking his works such as “Why We Chat” as an example, Director Lam shared his interpretation of the modern “loneliness” and “solitude”.
【Director Lam interacted with the audience】
For this time, at the 11th lecture of the Meeting the Intellectuals in the Spring Hills Lecture Series, we learnt from Director Lam and his works that the world does not follow the rule of binary opposition. We should not see things in black and white. Instead, chatting can let us experience more than we expected. It opens a window which leads to the mutual understanding of other people and the diverse world.
