Comprehending what identity is proofed to be harder than it seemed. The abstract concept refers to personal questions about one’s existence. Who am I? What identifies me? Even if we refuse to answer these questions for ourselves, our audience will find their own answers for them. In order to reply to my own questions, I diffused my appearance and thus the information it conveys to others. As a result of research and manual work, I found nine answers that depict my identity in a simple, but fluid manner. Being more than a combination of traits but parts of myself, they are shaped as different personas that I met while working on my appearance.
