The Witness, as an experimental project bringing psychological and philosophical issue of personal identity into visual context, aimed to engage with the viewers in the process of self-discovery. It reviewed the interrelationship between social observation and spiritual progression. Based on the notion of public impression, our individuality is under the influence of the others, reshaping our core values and beliefs. While there is an outburst of advocators frantically claiming to embrace our own authenticity, this project examined the potentiality of self-reflection in another perspective. It expressed the essence of self-identity, which was ‘believing in yourself’ and ‘appraising public perception’ – critical judgement on your own. The project consisted of two outcomes, including a black mirror box and a piece of supporting documentation. The box took every individual to a self-discovery journey, creating a spatial scenario of unintentional observation where the conceptual idea further interpreted in the documentation as a communicative purpose to trigger viewers’ responses. This was an exclusive visual experience to reconsider the truth of self-existence and identities.
