High Context Culture
It refers to a culture’s tendency to use high-context messages in routine communication.
In a higher-context culture, many things are left unsaid, letting the culture explain. Words and word choice become very important in higher-context communication, since a few words can communicate a complex message very effectively to an in-group (but less effectively outside that group),
I actually came across this term “High Context Culture” during my mastering communication class. This inspired me to decide the theme of this assignment. High context society is commonly seen in Asia countries. This is because we have a lot of untold traditions, taboos. And it is often different or directly opposite in another countries. Furthermore, as time grows, objects are given other meanings, which further adds on the diversity of culture.
For now, the object I proposed to use is the flower chrysanthemum
The subjects I want to express will be the following
- Point of view of a common object
- From different countries
- From different cultures and traditions
- From different values
- From different age groups
