A man has spent the first 100 days of 2021 livestreaming 24/7 from a locked room in Los Angeles, but he plans to stay there for the rest of the year, or even longer, if he gets the right financial incentive.
34-year-old Tim C Inzana has been locked in a shed since the start of the year, and he has no intention of coming out anytime soon. The Los Angeles artist he hopes to spend at least a whole year isolated like this, and then sell his livestream in a custom frame as an unusual piece of art. Right now, he is streaming for free on Twitch, but plans to find people willing to shell out $5 million and keep him locked for a whopping 5 years. He has also offered to stay isolated for 1o consecutive years, if someone agrees to pay him $10 million for the effort.
â€śThe artwork is me creating the artwork, it would be like seeing a blank space transform into this colorful space,â€ť Inzana toldÂ Insider Magazine. â€śI donâ€™t know exactly what Iâ€™m doing, to be honest. Thereâ€™s elements of me just following hunches and wanting to make the world a better place.â€ť
So how does one pass the time while isolated 24/7 in just one room? Well, during the day, the Los Angeles artist either sits in front of his computer doing Q&A sessions with his viewers, having a solo dance party virtually DJed by one of his followers, eating, meditating, or working on various artworks. At night, you can stare at him sleepingâ€¦
Tim C Inzana claims that he has spent months just preparing the shed on his property to accommodate him for a long period of time, and also consulted with his family and friends before undertaking the unusual challenge. Even his fiancĂ©e is on board, and she supports him by buying and bringing him groceries through the window.
In case he doesnâ€™t find enough people to invest $ million to keep him isolated for 5 years, or one person to shell out $10 million for a 10-year-long livestream, Inzana has a more accessible option: if heÂ gets 7,000 subscribers onÂ, he is willing to keep the stream publicly available for up to 5 years, as long as his subscriber count doesnâ€™t fall under 7,000. At the time of this writing, his subscriber count sits at 102, so he has a long way to go to reach his goal.
And here we thought thatÂ livestreaming yourself sleepingÂ was extremeâ€¦
