ALTERED EGO BY DAVID SINDEN, KATE WOODWARD
Altered Ego is a multi-disciplinary arts project that examines ideas of who we think we really are and how we present this to the outside world. It explores our alter egos: our notions of self-presentation in the world, differing identities for different contexts, and those ‘normal’ parts of human behaviour that are heightened in disability.
The project is predicated on the notion that we all create a sense of self and identity, and that we constantly recreate and evolve our identities in different situations. Through a series of creative interventions, this project examines the ways in which we all present our different selves with varying degrees of veracity, accuracy and even mendacity.
