2018 - Present
I ❤️ Dinosaurs
I make funny noises, I play movies in my head.
I do weird things with my voice, and tell people what I have read.
People think I am strange, but what is 'Normal' anyway?
'cos even if I wanted to change, I was born this way.
Jireh was diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) and ADHD when he was young, when he talked to his psychiatrist about dinosaurs for 2 hours straight, and fried the poor doctor's brains.
In this video performance, Jireh attempts to re-enter the mind-body space of his inner child, embodying the vocal and physical tics that emerge when the artist engages in imaginative flights of fantasy or in self-soothing behaviours, providing a glimpse into the artist's inner world of sensory overload and special interests.
*All sound effects in the film were produced vocally by the artist with no post-production or editing.
No dinosaurs were harmed in the making of this film.
