"Who Am I?"

Identity is a subject that has always preoccupied our minds. It has a meaning in every field, either in philosophy, psychology, mathematics, sociology, or in our own personal concept and expression. It is what describes our condition of existence and it represents all our characteristics; it defines us as individuals. What we do, think or how we take part in society and culture is our identity. Some of us might try to give identity a precise definition or significance and some might just collect loose thoughts or experiences in discovering ourselves c.q. individuality. Why is it important to talk about identity? It is a personal research, experience and discovery we all go through. It is a concern when a society accepts all individuals but at the same time builds borders between them or has strict requests for integration. Sometimes a very different identity can become an isolation. My project investigates gender identity, one of the most disputable and controverse subjects of our time. At birth we are assigned with a biological sex which identifies us in society as male or female human beings, but the case of gender dysphoria is completely ignored/neglected. The social categorization of gender identity is very limited and excludes the individuals that do not rightly fit in the female/male criteria. The project raises the question of gender identity reflected by our physical appearance or our psychology. Our physical representation in lines, volumes and shapes just creates an image, but it does not reflect our identity. Our biological image reflects part of our identity that will be shown in our body language.
