Many ME Many Moods is but a slight departure from the absurdities and anxieties of Random Gifts, Guilt And The Search for Confident series. The video selfies or animated avatars represent a projection state of mental health, characters in a game of survival. A performance of an array of emotions experienced in what has felt like a virtual lucid dreaming that points to a constructed meta self.

Survival is an act.”
