Like Boy

2012

 

With this project, I tried to pull out invisible characteristics from a variety of women and girls, spanning across ages and differing social positions. Simultaneously, I also wanted to stress the hopeful possiblity in the lessening percpetiblity between girls and boys. In short, a excitement to witness the gender-neutral.

 

I hope we can interact with this world without any sexual discrimination. I wish we could remember we are all unassigned when we were born.

 

男生和女生的差別除了生理外在的區分之外,

最大的差別在於隱性的態度和特質。

 

但我想在這現在的社會,其實早就男女不分。

很多男生可以做的事,女生可以做;

女生可以做的事,男生也可以做。

 

我所嘗試的是希望把女生像男生隱性的特質給表達出來,

比如說更堅強或是更頑皮。

從各種不同年齡階層,不同生活環境以及不同身分的角色當中,

根據他們原本個人的特色和生活去做對比,

從中挖掘出他們彼此男和女的區別,

但同時卻又隱約表達出事實上早就男女不分的中性世界。

 

事實上,我們每個人都很像男生也很像女生!
