“My phone is like a blank slate. It is taped into my existence. When I see my reflection on the screen, I forget who I am. I decide who I am. I am a himbo. we need more HIMBO’S. ONLY CARING ABOUT YOURSELF LOOKING PRETTY FEELING PRETTY BEING FAKE AND NAIVE AND NOT TOO MUCH IN YOUR HEAD. BEING A HIMBO IS A MEDITATION. ONLY ME-TIME FROM NOW ON. JUST WORKING OUT, GAINING SOME MUSCLES, SELLING OUR BODIES TO THE INTERNET. BEING A HIMBO IS THE FUTURE. I AM READY FOR MY CLOSE-UP. PLEASE PHOTOGRAPH ME IN THIS SWEATY MESS”

Enter the labyrinth and explore the space between virtuality and physicality. Accept the fluidity of your being, and embrace artificial self presentation as self expression. Together we celebrate the beauty of our constructed identities. a̷̡̲͑̆c̴͈̟̫̐̍͑c̸͖̦͂e̴͓͚̰͊͝p̴͖̈́͝t̷̤̒͛y̴̱͛ȯ̸̻͆u̵͙̰̒͋͝r̵͚̝̉̾͂f̵̠̹̑̃͘a̷̹͚͊̅̈k̶̜͗e̷̖͎̒̀̎n̸̥̽̅é̶̡ś̷͔̖̠s̶͚͇͊́̋
