I am Chris Purdie is a performance art piece involving thirty-five performers playing the role of visual artist Chris Purdie. The cast wears the "Chris Purdie uniform" and performs the role as they interact with patrons attending the artist's reception. For the duration of the exhibition, there will be at least one "Chris Purdie" in the gallery during their hours.

Utah Valley University Presentation 2009












I was given the opportunity to be the speaker for Utah Valley University's visiting artist lecture series. For this presentation I had a panel of five "Chris's" speaking as I stood next to them wearing the speaker suit. All of the microphones were wired to the suit so although they were speaking, I was the speaker.
