The media and scholars often view idols as products and the idol industry as an assembly line. However, I believe that the fundamental mechanism of the idol industry is the exchange of love, which is always obscured by the mainstream narratives of fame, ambition, intensive training, and exploitative contracts. As such, I organized an Idol audition that prioritizes the desire for non-mediated love as its criteria."Siming Entertainment" is such a loose platform composed of art practitioners providing the possibility for girls who are strangers to each other to form emotional connections with others.
