In today’s society, the guideline between right and wrong is slowly disappeared. All issues are becoming controversial. There are no more clear and definite answers to all matters. People lost directions and wonder what positions they should stand. Hence all the matters fall into the gray areas.
For this semiotic director project, a controversial message is represented through the use of three current issues, Iraq war, SARS and homosexual marriage. In this art piece, many contradictory ideas are raised. Audiences are frustrated. No definitive answers arise.
For this artwork, I have included an introductory animation followed by a welcoming screen with words of “Welcome to today’s society. Frustrated or Not? Enter”. It will then lead to the main page with the three current issues. For each of these issues, several debatable questions would be asked. For each question, two applicable choices would also be given to the audiences. Most of the questions include controversial ideas that cannot be easily answered. In most of the cases, the answers contradict to the choices made by the users. Hence, all the people will be confused and realized that matters fall into the obscured areas.
This interactive art piece illustrates people’s response to right and wrong answers in today’s world. In the past, it is believed that there were clear and definite answers to all questions. As the world continues to develop, it slowly becomes a chaotic place where nobody knows what to do. Everything is in contradiction. The question is where to go next.

In order to reveal the message of right and wrong, a semiotic project is constructed by using twenty-four images arranging in a six by four format. These images contain only two main words, right and wrong. The background colors are changing instantly from black to white and to gray. In the series, six individual images are repeating in the following format,
