@ 2020 Labor Residency, Santa Fe Art Institute ︎Santa Fe, New Mexico
In January & February 2020, I was invited to the 2020 Labor Residency as a Labor Fellow at the Santa Fe Art Institute in New Mexico. There I developed a live ASMR Mukbang performance for Platform: Engaging the Ethics of Production and Consumption, an event series that aims to “bridge art and social engagement with interactive works and participatory experiences co-created by SFAI staff and artists-in-residence.”
From their press release:
Performer May Maylisa Cat replicates the act of meditative consumption by a livestream ASMR Mukbang performance blending virtual and real-time audience engagements that challenges the fantasy of globalism and playfully undermine capitalism’s problematic production, food conviviality, and the consumption of the cultural “Other.”
Medium: performance, livestream broadcasting system, facebook, pad thai
Duration: 21 minutes
Stills from the ASMR Mukbang performance through the desktop and mobile device. The artist is eating Pad Thai while chatting with viewers live, then blending the food with white bleach to make a “fusion” Pad Thai.
