“Sample Text Here” is an experimental card game consisting of a collection of found footage imagery from the famous Chinese shopping site Taobao. It is a challenging game yet a fun way for a visual study of pop culture in the internet shopping era. Every illustration itself is in fact an artwork from the seller. Point of the game is to explain your partner what is shown in the picture without using words written as a title underneath it. Surprisingly, even the titles tend to sound like experimental poems. Altogether, “Sample Text Here” stresses humans' ability for abstract and innovative thinking.
