This performance video is a parody of love and longing in the Age of Internet. The character Galaxia falls in virtual love with internet sensation and heartthrob Habibi Gaytan who was born in Mexico City but shares common roots from her native country Lebanon. She transgresses the virtual boundaries of her love and desire and moves it to the physical plane, by setting out on a quest to search for her Habibi in the streets of Mexico City. She posts the video showing her search on youtube, counting on the generosity of internet viewers to share it in the hopes of it reaching Habibi Gaytan so their love can be united.
