Identity deals with the relationship between genetics, the psychological, the physical and the spiritual.
Twofold approaches the culture of twins and how twins are perceived in society. It serves to communicate the dualities and complexities of being a twin, layering the outside views that are projected on twins with my own personal experiences of having a twin. Despite my convictions of differences between my sister and I, one cannot deny the genetic connection between the two of us, and it is precisely this that spurs wonderment in the world of singletons. The concept is manifested in the form of a double accordion-style book. The two accordions are separate but bound by one cover, mimicking identical twins in the womb. The orientation of the two books are facing each other so that the content is reflected, mirroring each other to make a reference to the concept of “mirror twins.”
