Diva TV (?) Woman with food. takeaway. skull sweater. talking about the food (not in english, not sure what she is saying) sharing the moment of eating either order the food or cook it and then eat it. long videos also a money-making thing. as a follower you can donate to them very sexualised
T: are they lonely? maybe
responding to comments live. sometimes very staged
T: it's about 'plenty'
they're obviously very lonely, as are the people at home. we live in a different world fetishistic
G: is it bleak? don't see it as bleak. quite resourceful. selling your body in a way
POV, imagining yourself there eating with them. addictive
most of the money made through the fans unboxing videos Steve admits he has watched unboxing videos!
G: people have to work to get the viewers. have to be pioneering, or work for free to begin with. fashion blogger friend who has a follwing despite poor quality of the blog posts.
S: lifestyle that is funded by work. no salary but everything is sponsored
You are feeding yourself in order to make money to feed yourself.
G: Mum started a home interiors shop in the house. George and his brothers would be in the shop because it was part of the home. analogue version of lifestyle selling
Steve: Playground as the factory (book)

How to be productive The only way to access artistic practice in a prductive way is to be G R O U N D E D
Experience of a meditation week. No speaking, waking up at 6 with a gong, chanting, metitating, going to bed at 9. Great food. Anxious about studying before the retreat. realised during the meditation that there was no need to 'defeat' the fear, but the fear was not really there.
Having the courage to be in leisure as much as in work ie. a reminder to chill
ARTWORK: Marten Spangberg - La Substance Swedish choreographer, performing, dancing, now choreographing performances. 4 hour performance in a big space, audience can go in and out. Shiny set. CHANEL. Pink vest. Muzak. Slow movements around the space. Dancing. Selfies. Slow jam. Smoke machines. Jelly. There can't be a reason for everythign that is in the space - liberate yourself from the idea that everything is necessary. overloaded but well choreographed
other performances a bit samey maybe
i'm not supposed to entertain you for four hours nonchalance
how do you negotiate interaction in these situations? in a western context... not a forced thing
