青少年美感調查 七成五學生不識本土藝術家 | 7 in 10 Taiwan students unfamiliar with local artists

TAIPEI (The China Post) – With the advent of the “net beauty era,” the King Car Cultural & Educational Foundation has conducted a survey on the aesthetic perceptions of high school and college students in Taiwan.

網美時代來臨,金車文教基金會針對國、高中及大學生調查美感生活認知。

The survey shows that 80 percent of young people tend to demonstrate their sense of aesthetics through photography on social media. It is at the same time their main channel to cultivate their aesthetic senses.

發現高達八成青少年多透過拍照、打卡展現美感,美感品味培養管道也多來自網路。

However, they might know Kusama Yayoi or Karl Lagerfeld, but only 20 percent of them could articulate the names of local Taiwanese artists, among which are Ju Ming, Yu Kwang-chung, Jason Wu, Ann Lee, Vincent Fang, Mayday, and Jay Chou.

但根據統計,現在青少年或許知道草間彌生、卡爾・拉格斐,但僅有兩成青少年說得出台灣本土藝術家,該兩成青少年認識的藝術家則包含朱銘、余光中、吳季剛、李安、方文山、五月天與周杰倫等。

According to the survey, about 82 percent of young people show their aesthetic life through Facebook and Instagram. Other channels include television and movies (42.2 percent), family environment (41.6 percent) and schools (33 percent).

根據金車文教基金會調查,約有八成二青少年透過臉書與IG展現美感生活,其他培養管道則依序為電視電影42.2%、家庭環境41.6%與學校33%。

Furthermore, 58.8 percent of young people think that in order to have a sense of beauty, the first thing is to have a personal style, although wearing big brands does not fall into the category.

在青少年眼中,生活美感首要必須具備個人風格58.8%、穿著時尚與追求品牌則都不屬於青少年認為美感生活應具備的重要項目。

Another 50.1 percent think that having a leisure lifestyle is crucial, while the other 41.5 percent believe in the importance of cultivating the inner charm.

其次反而是生活悠閒50.1%、培養內在氣質41.5%。
