Body Count is a durational livestream performance that explores self-love, camming, and the nature of self-documentation embedded into the core of social media. The daily streaming centers around the ritual of “sleep”, which holds the same duality as the phrase “body count”. Sleep in one definition can mean the act of sleeping. The other, a euphemism for sex i.e. “I slept with her once.” “Body Count”s usage works with similar duality; “Body Count” as in a literal number of bodies, or “Body Count” as used to describe the number of people one has slept with. In both cases, sleep is an intensely vulnerable state. Live streaming is a violent invasion of this privacy, opening a previous state of solitude into a one-way relationship between the viewer and the subject.
