Taiwanese Blogger Out to Kiss 100 Strangers in Paris
In the name of, art?
“A Taiwanese blogger is out to kiss one hundred different strangers in Paris and take a picture of each one. Yang Ya-ching, a twenty-seven-year-old music student living in Paris, thought of the project three years ago, but only acted on it this summer.
The desire for a lasting memory of Paris is what inspired Yang. According to her blog, the first kiss was from a worker installing outdoor advertising and was like “an autumn leaf falling into my pocket by accident.”
Quickly becoming an overnight sensation in Taiwan, Yang has created quite a bit of controversy with her project. According to an article in the Taipei Times, many Taiwanese men feel left out and wonder why she didn’t do the project in Taiwan. Others are criticizing her project as “just an excuse to kiss handsome young men.”
When finished, Yang intends to write a book about her experiences…
Let me guess; 100 pages long on a scale from 1-10. I shouldn’t be so harsh, Yang is a creative.
My friend Caitlin is “a great believer in self expression; whether sleazy or not, I respect her free-spirited attitude” and I find that very cool. What are your thoughts?
