Evidence is the artist‘s early exploration on identity. This work highlights an uncertainty that is about

relationships between people, or rather life itself. The artist came up with an idea one day to hold a party

with each of her friends brought apparels that resemble most of their characters. Then the group made

two sets of numbers – one to stick on the clothes, while the other for the group members to pick randomly

from. Each member picked one number and tried on the clothes accordingly. Then the artist wrote down

actions and dialogues that resemble each identity, numbered them for a random selection. The one would

have to act and talk according to the number he/she picked. Thus each member of the group, wearing

others’ clothes, talking in another one’s way, behaving a third one, felt totally excited, weird, yet true.
