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?

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.
