Caitlin Griffiths is an artist based in Manchester.
For a number of years my existing practice of video, text and performance has been rooted in the idea of identity being created through a process of exchange. This is both through our interaction with other people (external exchange) and our recalled experiences and memories (internal exchange). I have worked in partnership with neuroscientists and psychologists as well as actors, clairvoyants and those who experience alter identities, in order to make sense of how our mental narratives and internal voices create us, while at the same time being created by us. This has previously manifested in my video and performance works in which I exchange and reconfigure voices.
My recent interest in Quantum Physics has come via the identity politics of Judith Butler to Karen Barad and then to Nobel Prize winning physicist Niels Bohr. Starting from Bohr’s Copenhagen Interpretation which theorized that reality is only summoned into existence through the act of looking at it, my current work aims to draw parallels between observation theory and identity formation.
