TASK 2 : identity

To keep going on knowing each other, the second task was about identity. The task is really open, the simple word identity is the description of it.

 

When I think about identity, I think about expressing who we are. As a fashion student, I’ve directed my reflection in a fashion way.

 

Firstly, I thought that we are trying to express who we are thought the clothes we are wearing but thanks to them we can pretend to be everything or people can misunderstanding and have prejudices because of the style you’re owning. So clothes infer lies. So I felt that to be true I needed to take off the clothes.

 

In a second time, I thought about writing on the body because writing is a truthful way to communicate. Words are aimed at highlighting precisely what you want to express.

 

And third, I thought that you’re identity is not only your physical appearance, it is obviously also your thoughts, that’s why I’ve made a “Thought’s hat”. This hat is a mix of different colours, because of the diversity of our thoughts. Those colours are matching because we need to be logical in our thoughts. Then I’ve also put some straight lines because we all have values that we’ll keep all our life long because they’re a matter of education. Those straight lines are representing those values.

 

The whole photo is so the metaphor of my identity.

TASK 1 : discovering by guessing :

The first task was about to dicover our partner in Paris.

In order to get to know our partner we were suposed to reproduce to scale every item that we carry with us daily. Just like we are going through custom control at an airport and your personal belongings are scanned in the X-Ray machine.
This could have been a drawing, photograph, painting, written description, print, a tracing.
 
 
I've decided to play with the X-ray Machine.
I thought that a X-Ray machine is a kind of revealing machine because it is supose to telle the truth on what the person that use it carry with him. We can't lie to her.
So I've taken photos of things that don't reprensent my self and some others that do. The one that don't were shoot normally and the one that do were with a X-Ray machine effect. Just as if the X-Ray machine had reveal who I really am.
I've sent it to my partner with who I've never talk and she was supposed to guess what kind of person I am thanks to what she has received. And vice versa.
