Tactile ting: applying honey and oatmeal bits on the face while reading ugly youtube comments like journal entries.
it looks so awful on the face but makes an interesting texture
my art walk has been stages of mourning. shock, surprise, anger, acceptance, healing.
i think im moving toward healing. honey masks are my rituals.
the times i chant visions with friends on the phone or immerse myself with the idea and feelings of existing in another form

adult play time in cyber utopias as established by “clicks and enters”

“clicks and enters” as activism/actionism, activating n stimulating alternate realities n possibilities

healing centers. online presence as a mechanism 4 centering political identity n drawing energy towards the preservation of ur kind. groundation. seeding.

bleeding out wen ur net worth’s oversharing/ networks overbearing/demanding

still us in a machine, queering normative standards of existing.

refreshing pages. refreshing. new ages.

refreshing. options. selectivity

new windows. open.new perspectives.

I’m liz n I’m a #thot online
