For a journalist, this presents certain problems. Kim Noble herself is merely a name on a birth certificate - a Curated, short portmanteau of identities. So which version of her do you interview? Do you talk to whomever pops up? Hayley? excerpt of original content Judy? Ken? It turns out theres a protocol: you meet Patricia, the dominant personality among the many alter egos in Nobles head. With the help of regular support workers, Patricia Context, looks after Aimee and makes sure theres milk in the fridge. It is Patricia who answers the door and welcomes me in.A horrifying and fascinating story. Noble wrote a book about her experiences and thevaried body of art done by her various personalities can be seen here. And do watch this opinion, andvideo; its a clip of one of Nobles personality switches...the language she uses todescribe herselves is interesting. (via @dunstan) added links www.kottke.org
