Tzu-Yun Hung has dealt with questions about her own identity as a Taiwanese woman living in Germany in her graduation project. The creation of the series, which comprises three pieces of jewellery, was preceded by an investigation into questions of life in linguistically and habitually foreign communities. To what extent can one change and adapt one's own identity? And what kind of consequences may adaptation have for one's own self? Tzu-Yun Hung collected materials from her home region in Taiwan and her new home in Germany, transformed them and combined them with each other. The results are objects whose homogeneous surfaces reveal nothing about the diverse origin of their parts.
