David Levine will recruit five actors to acquire five consenting individuals as characters, using the techniques of method acting. Levine will document on video their studio sessions—a mixture of live portraiture and talk therapy—as well as the project’s culmination, which will compare the behavior of the models and their “clones” in a series of controlled experiments.
