Entry Description

Two individuals with split identities share the same birthdates, who spent 99% together as if we are the same person as if our lives coexist as one human being. The two of us share the same vision in life; yet still, we are somehow quite different and we know it. In this project Nature versus nurture plays a crucial part in our lives as twins as in how differently we perceive life through different bodies but being judged as one. We apply the grading system of patterns which is the method of converting size or sample size patterns into additional sizes of the body’s measurements.
