The generic form of contemporary set out of museum and gallery for paintings and installations tends to be white while that of contemporary performance for a concert, dance or theater is black. Both are intended to avoid the exhibition environment from competing against the objects or persons in the display. Thus, in Ambiguously Yours, grey as an overall color was chosen with layers of translucent materials and structural frames to create an ambiguity between the black and white which implicitly ties into the questions on dichotomy in normative display setting of contemporary art forms. The grey backdrop becomes a canvas for the lighting design to achieve a theatrical quality of being on stage which echoes the content of certain exhibits like concert costumes and images of different performances.
