It is hard to change labels stuck on by others. Even if we want to change ourselves completely to match the labels that we want, we just can’t. People always neglect the details and label and critique others. But the subtle difference is the most important thing that we shouldn’t forget.

I use jewellery to reflect my over-emphasis on labels and the helplessness and observation of social labelling.

我們從來難以改變別人對我們的標籤,亦難以完全改變自己以獲得大眾認同。當人們互相歸類、標籤和批判時,往往都會忽略細微的差別,但其實這些細微的分別才是最不能夠忽視的地方。

我嘗試以首飾反思自己對於「標籤」的過分重視以及對於社會標籤現象的觀察與無奈。
