A young man on the left wearing a hoodie reading “880 thousand” walks under the heavy pressure of three stones that represent polarization, unemployment and tuition. The 880 thousand represents the monthly earnings of irregular workers ($796). He carries a book of “specs,” in his arm, a desperate effort to build up his resume during the ultra competitive job-hunting process.

As he evolves, he reads stories about current society built to favor the “1%” through SNS messages on a tablet PC.

The young man, now wearing a hoodie designating him as part of the “99%” goes to a polling station with a ballot that reads, “mass voting.”
