During the course of the tutorial with Jake, I came up with a way of incorporating yin and yang echoes into my exhibition. I decided to forgo the use of yin-yang diagrams and instead prepare many black dots and white dots on the exhibition floor. For example, A1 and B1 are black dots and A2 and B2 are white dots. Visitors will be given these dots when they enter the exhibition and then confirm that the videos are a pair by watching each video clip and placing A1/A2 and B1/B2 in the box under the player.

Through this pairing I hope to get participants to look carefully at the different social identities and different life events of the same person in the video, and to think about whether a ‘social person’ is living a life made up of multiple social identities. It is hoped that this approach will increase audience engagement.

Jake gave me a few suggestions and notes that I found very helpful. Firstly, it would be good for me to have tables and signage to show visitors how to use the black and white dots through text, in case there are visitors who don’t know how to use them or how to engage with them when I’m not there.

Secondly, to get feedback from the audience I need to guide them so that they actively develop the idea of writing feedback during their visit. Alternatively, I could create a QR code and place it in the exhibition space so that visitors can fill it in and I can collect it myself.
