Specimen is a self-portrait series of being wrapped up. Behind the wrap, I don’t have to feel bashful to show myself. I can look at myself again and again, just like look through the mirror, or even just like the beautiful butterfly can be perfectly preserved in the plastic box, as a specimen, or as a collection.
