Carl Smith
Performance

Festival: 2015

Taking inspiration from a documented belief from the inventor Thomas Edison; that we have up to 15 people living inside our heads, adopting this as my core belief in my art practice. Using performance, I continuously dress up in different costumes to represent my 15 people and my belief that my mind is made up of a multiple of different “characters” all working together as a hive mind. Each representing an aspect or trait of my psyche, they display different physical and social features complimentary to their role. As I grow and change as a person, they must change too.
