An identity is often thought of as a unique distinguisher and defining it is complicated. It is frequently pictured as a combination of attributes (physical features, beliefs, values and so on) or a result of our past experiences. However, this notion has been made even more complex now that a smart, digitalised city seems to be what we are heading towards. People have dissenting opinions on this, especially when questions like whether an AI with a human consciousness has its own identity starts to arise.
What determines who we are? Some scientists claim we are largely controlled by our genes which dictate our species, appearance and maybe even personality traits, while also revealing who and what we are descended from. Others argue that the environment we grow in matters more than our genes since society and the media have a large influence on how we perceive ourselves.
At the end of the day, do we really know what constitutes our identity if there exists so many theories that can be challenged? Can we still call it the core of who we are when we are almost engineered on a daily basis?
With the paradigm of creating unique, interdisciplinary and experimentational works, the platforms of RAW Radix form the bedrock of RAW Moves.

C.R.A.M.: The Prologue (2021)
Performance is the sole/soul purpose of our being,
our existence through the
constant cycle of expressing and experiencing ourselves.
We are multi-dimensional,
we are our spirit, emotion, mind and body working harmoniously together.
Wherein lies our origin? Where does it lead us? Why do we move?
How do we move?
Provoked by RAW Moves' theme of Identification, Zihao revisits his decades of explorations, research and reflections to investigate C.R.A.M.: The Prologue.
