Leeson conceived of, constructed and ‘developed’ a fictional persona and alter ego, Roberta Breitmore.

Roberta was 30 years old, divorced and moved to San Francisco in 1974 with savings of 1'800 USD.
Consisted of:
a physical self-transformation
a fully-fledged, ‘complete’ personality
physical evidence which could prove her existence

The end of the project resulted in hundreds of documents from which one could attempt to piece together a portrait of this young woman in mid-seventies, West Coast America (171 photographs, documents and performances in total)
The project involved a series of carefully orchestrated actions such issuing advertisements in a newspaper seeking a roommate as well as blind dates.

The latter resulted in a series of physical encounters that Roberta had, with real people, in the real world, the repercussions of which played a key role in the formation of her psyche.
The Roberta Breitmore Seriesis a portrait study and interactive portrait performance of a woman in the U.S. in the 70s.

It explores the then current zeitgeist, (the defining spirit or mood of a particular period of history as shown by the ideas and beliefs of the time) and also investigates the socially predefined role of a woman at that time.
1995–2000:Roberta transformed into the CybeRoberta, an interactive artificial intelligent sculpture on the web.

Every object in Lorna’s tiny apartment has a number that when pressed, access sound and video information about Lorna’s fears and dreams as well as her personal history, conflicts and future.

Seventeen minutes of moving footage and 36 chapters which, when sequenced, shift meanings as they are recontextualized.

migrated to a DVD platform in 2004.
possible endings
1. death by suicide,
2. departure and escape by leaving the apartment
