SUMMARY

People always say "In one ear and out the other", which means they usually just ignore what the other said. I use large animal ears to represent that humans ignore opinions even when their ears can hear a lot. The knitting wool is used to represent that the brain is full of things, and it does not have space to receive other people's opinions. I add a microphone in the left ear and a loudspeaker in the right ear to show the Chinese idiom "Left ear in, right ear out". People always live in their own world, and I want to show this idea via my work.
