The Webjay cannibalises the content that he/she collects on different websites or within his/her own artistic productions presented on the internet.

The webjay deconstructs a content and makes it his/her own by rearranging it differently to generate alternative narratives . The result bears the personal hallmark of the performer, it is a unique and original creation which can distort the initial purpose of the messages.

The Web Performance is a work in progress in line with the culture of remix, of recycling, of diversions and daring associations.
