THE MAGICK H8-BALL





An interactive video installation featuring Sophia Lamar.


A dark comedic reinterpretation of the classic fortune-telling children’s toy, the Magic 8-Ball. After asking a yes-or-no question, the viewer presses the “H8” button of the piece; Sophia’s floating head appears and reads the viewers their misfortunes in her infamous, humorous, hateful & insulting manner.


Featured in the book THE FUN: Social Practice of Nightlife in NYC published by the Museum of Art & Design.


Special thanks to Burle Avant, Ned Stressen-Reuter, Mikey Lamar and Evan Monster.
