A GUIDE TO GAME OF THAIS




A Guide to Game of Thais is a collection of informal language that has emerged within recent political unrest in Thailand. These insider terms have grown in numbers, power, and complexities during the past years. The year 2014 was the rising moment of social media and LINE chat program. Memes and jokes has become critical players that take part in driving the political game of the nation. Its spreading has the power to bring people together but also take them apart.

However, as time passes, these symbol will gradually become irrelevant, though very few will still remain. The work aims to capture the moment of the 2013-2014 unrest in Thailand through these temporarily powerful players, and to celebrate the coexisting political spectrum that was there before the recent coup d'etat.
