F) Art piece

자린고비 자린고비2 자린고비4F) My art piece is called “JarinGoBi” in Korean. There is a real story of a guy named Joreuk, who was a Korean Scrooge trying to save his money all the time. Since he was a great penny pincher, he ate his lunch gazing at a hanging fish without eating it. He just stared at it and when his son looked at the fish twice, he snarled at his son, “Isn’t the fish too salty when you stare at it twice?” This story made me think about consumerism differently. Although this story is a great story that the family have saved a great deal of money, but would they have any joy? Rather than just staring at it, if they ate fish, wouldn’t they have more pleasure? So, in our society although adequate saving is great for us, I personally believe that too much saving without proper spending would negatively affect us. Spending for our happiness is not a bad thing after all.
