Impostor: The Audition
video, 2006-9, Part of the Impostor series + Living Documents installation
Actors responding to an audition call for an experiment art video were sent a copy of the Identity Profile via email. From this profile they were asked to create an interpretation of the statistical data presented in the Profile. A difficult task, some of the actors fell back on stereotypes or cliches while others struggled with the concept as a whole. All of them offered an interesting take.
Originally shot in 2006, the video was not cut and exhibited until 2009. This project has exhibited as part of the installation entitled Living Documents.
