In Taiwan’s modern language, trash talk is widely used. Whether at work or at home, many people tend to exaggerate for their own selfish purposes, regardless whether it is about religious or political issues. In several volumes, this richly illustrated publication examines this cultural phenomenon. With its high-contrast colour scheme, it is designed to attract attention. Using humorous, ironic trash-talk phrases creates a conflict between these phrases and the illustrations – in this way, it shows that communication between modern humans often involves contradictory conduct.
