XIE3LLA is 3lla's live internet ego, sharing the experience of an internet personality IRL [in real life].
XIE3LLA is an internet AI creature that successfully crawled out of a 13 year olds Tumblr desktop and into the real world around 2005. With the desire to become human, XIE3LLA adapted into society, learning how to become a user in the real world. However, realising the terrifying truths and nature of the physical world it has since made attempts to get back into the screen, searching for portals and frequency timelines to end back into the digital world.
These attempts to escape takes place in collaborative body and voice performances, where XIE3LLA seduces human energies with its sounds to create infinite portals that supposedly will open up an opportunity to turn digital again. These attempts have yet not been successful as the crowd tends to grab XIE3LLA back into the physical.
