summarise feedback from my tutor

  1. how can sound more impact ?
  2. question
  3. which way can influence people? how many?
  1. Changing my question to :
  2. Finding the strong story and telling my facial problem story : The online media coverage of seemingly ideal beautiful women affects how my facial attractiveness is self-perceived. My eyes are considered to be never big enough, and face never small enough in comparison with the broadcasted ideal types. No sooner had I adjusted to this cultural shock, than I had a ferocious facial allergy last year resulting in a permanent reddish and swollen face. I was so unconfident to expose my face that wearing a hat and sunglasses became part-and-parcel of my life for the past year. Looking back at this tormenting experience, I realise how significantly the self-perception of facial attractiveness influences the self-esteem of a female. The aim of this study is to advocate that plastic surgery is not a singular mean to enhance facial attractiveness. This will be done by showcasing other viable means, e.g. by applying makeup, to effectively elevate facial appearances.
  3. Making the audio shortly, the recorded interview has been condensed to be 1 minute.
  4. Testing audio: stakerholders and people work in different industries were invited to listen to the interview and leave their comments.
  5. Intervention app: an online platform is being developed to invite people who are not confidence with their facial beauty, share each other story and interact.

 

Current intervention issue: I can invite a lot of people into my account and i can talk each other , but I can’t put them together to talk and listen to the audio at the same time.

Question : still need to develop it

Audio testing feedback: according the shakeholder’s feedback, I’m consider should use audio and photos( compare photos in two different way)

 

 

 

NEW INTERVENTION—NEW APP

Due to my own problems, I am not very confident about my appearance. For example, my eyes are not big enough and my face is not small enough, especially when I am influenced by the fashion entertainment scene. My skin causes no surgery, so I’m looking for other ways to enhance facial attractiveness besides cosmetic surgery to help a new generation of young people (aged:15-30) to increase their awareness of the beauty and discover their own beauty rather than singleness Worship a kind of beauty.

In the post millennium mainland China, the media coverage of attractive women (e.g. on the internet, TV shows, movies and etc.) from United Kingdom and United States of America has contributed to the nationwide pursuit of a western ideal of beauty through facial cosmetic surgery . China is one of the top three countries worldwide for its number of facial cosmetic surgery patients . However,  surgical interventions on a woman’s face – e.g. double-eyelid surgery, reshaping of the nose and face to name a few – are no doubt painful, and risky. they can result in infection, bleeding, facial nerve injury and scar formation .

However, it has been widely accepted that the notion of beauty is subjective and there is no `gold standard’ for facial beauty . Several researchers (Rhodes et al., 2005; Mulhern et al., 2003) even found that extraneous to physical facial aesthetics, non-physical characteristics – such as a pleasant expression and cosmetic makeup – also improve attractiveness. Hence, it is reasonable to postulate that these could serve as alternative means to enhance facial beauty without the help of dangerous and painful plastic surgery.

How can the facial attractiveness of Chinese women be increased through non-surgical methods in order to improve confidence and satisfaction of Chinese young people in their own beauty?

Therefore, for the intervention’s question is : How can sounds(audio) powerfully influence(change) our conception of Chinese beauty standards?

Then I created  new interventions a game: I recorded the voice about Chinese facial beauty   and nature beauty, and then invite Chinese young women to listen to this audio, and then compare two groups; one has listened ,one has not.

According to the above method,I will create an official Wechat account, on which publish contents involving Chinese young generation aged:15-30 years old) in different beauty standards, and using audio in this account which can help reader then in actual conversations. I hope to help people who are not confident in their appearance through this frequency channel .

 

This is a new APP that  I created.  want to use this app to create  a community to invite  people who are  not  confidence with their facial beaut, share each other story and interface people.

APP dress: http://cs.velo.top/customerService/commonAccount/dialogue/#/ ( only phone)

current issue: I can invite a lot of people into my account and i can talk each other , but i can’t put them together to talk and listen to the audio at the same time.

 

Therefore,  i find the new app which i can use it as a base area to built my community.

I used this app to create  a community (opening the talking room 实时的)and invited someone who are interesting this topic or they can enter my community when they saw it and  to listen to the audio and then communite.

  3. Making the audio shortly,  I edited it to 1 minute.
  4. Testing audio: invite stakerholder and some people work in different industry  to listen the audio, give me feedback.

Tutorial meeting —-Richie

  1.
