I Love Myself! is a reference to peep shows. Using Virtual Reality (VR) Goggles, I was able to build the experience of a small theater that the viewer gets to look into. As the viewer looks into this, the feeling of voyeurism should be pressed into their minds. Do they stay to watch more? How long do they stay for? If they have backed up from watching it, why? These are some of the questions I would like the viewer to think about, when participating in the experience of viewing the video.

Through this performance, I was able to explore ideas of self love, queer masculinity and voyeurism. As the work has grown and transformed, it inherently got more sexual, in the interest of self love, to the extreme.
