Full depicts the life of a student constantly haunted by the thoughts of school work. It reflects the emotional struggle of students, having to be force-fed information on a daily basis. Often, students find themselves too busy, even forgetting to eat as they feel mentally ‘full’ from studying. Dumplings, shaped like ingots, represent how education brings wealth. They also reflect a highly competitive society that drives students to be academically focused so as to be successful later in life.
