Latest correspondence between Yin-Ling and MaryKate

Sorry to bombard you with all of these emails. I had an idea...
How would you feel about one of the projects being photographs of us each wearing a mask of the others face, going about our daily routine. We could video or photograph our encounters. Have you ever done any life-casting/moldmaking? it is quite simple. I was thinking something Jillian Wearing-esque. I feel that we are so similar in interests but we physically look different. It may be an interesting experiment. I can make a mask of my face and mail it to you. It would be really simple and monotone in color but have my features and your eyes looking through it. Perhaps it would only be beige in color.
Let me know
it's very interesting . I'll mail my face to you ~~
haha i think a interesting thing... i really like "mask"

i think this project maybe let me experience your life , it is like having two identity~

And last time i say about my idea (making a work for my partner)
i want to make a gift for you by photo . it's like a commodity ad.
the content is about " i guess you will like it "
because i think we know each outher by many information (your interesting or your web...)
but maybe i imagine that "you" is not real "you"

so you will get some strange commodity ad haha ...
for example , i need you grawing some simple portraits(only line...and some characteristics...can consult the annex↓), this portrait is maybe the people of your dream or you want to see. you can wish he or she (the portraits) has to be policeman or designer or psychoanalysts primer...any more

and then i will as much as i can do to find he or her (real people)

sorry maybe difficult to understand... : ) you don't care it . i think it's very free

hope everything goes well~ : )
