(performer; stooge; meat popsicle / b. 2016)

 

“After a decade of gestating in the industry, the D.W.J. was born as a fully autonomous, semi-sentient human male construct designed for performance environments. Powered and piloted by the artist, the D.W.J. is programmed to carry out tasks typically performed by actors and models, without any of the confusion of personhood.”

On the one hand, it’s just a funny and bizarre way to “sell myself” and still feel comfortable working in entertainment. On the other hand, it’s a deeply personal work of cybernetic art highlighting the atrocity of commodification.
