Iterated across a number of shows, Mythiccbeing ("my thick being") centers around the character Mythiccbeing, a black, upwardly mobile, violent, solipsistic, sociopathic, gender neutral femme. Mythiccbeing is a personified threat model. Like all models, Mythiccbeing travels a lot, has a strict diet, and is obsessed with their image. Mythiccbeing has two sides: a conscious ego and a shadow self.
Mythiccbeing centers around an interactive video installation in which video monitors appear against the backdrop of or alongside a photographic wallpaper. On the screens we encounter the protagonist Mythiccbeing either as the conscious ego, embodying the postures of his Los Angeles life, or the shadow self, a digital avatar of the artist herself. Through SMS conversation with a chatbot programmed by the artist, gallery viewers can control the appearance of animation, image, and text across the monitors, engaging in live-editing the narrative of Shame Space. Viewers can engage in text conversations with Mythiccbeing on their phone. She'll respond, unless you tell her not to.
