Stereotypes have become such a norm in our society, to the point where people assume things based off appearances alone. This piece highlights the negative stereotypes targeted towards asians as it has been amplified due to assumptions of ties between Covid and China. As we can see in the piece, there is an asian girl who looks as if she is almost faded into the background. She shows obvious discomfort on her face, due to the sticky notes placed onto her. The sticky notes are a mental visualisation of others labelling someone based off appearance alone. Since she looks asian, she is a target of these negative stereotypes. The “sticky notes” are more noticeable and eye catching as it shows that people see the stereotypes or the labels before they truly see the person.
