Discovery on passers-by’s unconscious movements or mental states, Yim transformed them into a physical practice. In respond to the surveillance system via ‘gait identification’ (it works by recognising human inertia and limb movements), Yim suggests Against Step which constantly conduct an undefined, continuous step dance of resistance to avoid identification. In other words, it is a practice that gives up personal qualities and abandons oneself in order to trade back individual freedom.

逆踏是一個身體修練,去透過不斷變換身體的表現 (腳步接觸地面的方式、身體的精神狀態、有意識的小動作*),從而避過「步態識別」的監控 (這是一種對人的慣性和肢體動作辨識身份的系統)。諷刺地監控系統想把人識別,又可再而評分,把人物化地分類,而逆踏是藉著一種以放棄個人特質,捨棄自我的修練,進行一種不被定義,持續抗爭之踏舞。
