Carlos Luna James, aka MGOGLKTKO, is a multimedia artist who uses science fiction and fantasy to explore the nuances of perception of virtual and physical space through art and technology. By merging sculpture, video projection, animation, and sound, his unending storytelling engages all our sensors at once. 

Pistol Star, who symbolizes Long Life & Prosperity, is an ancient creature form a hyper-giant star approximately 25,000 light years from Earth. These mighty electro-jaguar is part of the “Cosmic Beasts” and a member of “The New Alliance”, a social movement that helps promote empathy, love, and happiness in the world of humankind. His wearable smart shades scan people for viruses, which often lead to depression or anxiety. Pistol Star’s anti-virus scanner is designed in a way that, when you look in his shades, immediately a tunnel encapsulates you and slowly takes you to other dimensions, full of true colors and psychedelic shapes. More often you go to happy places, but all depends on where you currently are in your mental state. Be aware!

aka MGOGLKTKO Digital & Mixed Media - Installation. Currently lives and works in LA. Carlos Luna James, aka MGOGLKTKO, is a multimedia artist who uses science fiction and fantasy to explore the nuances of perception of virtual and physical space through art and technology. By merging sculpture, video projection, animation, and sound, his unending storytelling engages all our sensors at once. The artist wants us to consciously let go of what we perceive as reality and in that state of trance he opens for us an opportunity to connect to other possible parallel reality. Interested in realms of reality and simulation, fascinated by alter states of consciousness such as dreaming, trance, hypnosis, meditation, and the effects of psychedelic drugs, Carlos uses these transcendental experiences as inspiration for his work. In it, he explores cultural diversity and subsequent hybridization as a fertile soil for cultivating positive human emotions, such as kindness and empathy, and sees the ability to migrate whether in reality or simulation as an opportunity to explore visions of utopian worlds. Incorporating digital screens, projectors, video mapping, laser cutting, and 3D printing in his creative process, the artist combines traditional workmanship techniques with advanced technology and creative innovation executing every detail with architectural precision and indomitable imagination. MGOGLKTKO (pronounced ma’go gala’ktiko, means Galactic Wizard in English) is the artist’s alter ego, a fictional nomadic character from light-years away, a spiritual shaman who was able to connect with the Higher Consciousness, travel through multi-dimensional portals and become a human hybrid capable to morph into beasts with superpower. Through his journey he connected with an ancient civilization named “The Cosmic Beasts”, a group with similar goals and unique superpowers. They formed “The New Alliance”–a social movement that strives to share and promote empathy, love, and happiness to human civilization. Together they share a virtual world named Xama-Totek, a true ecosystem where empathy, love, and consciousness are used to create what is called the “Universal Language”, a way to live all as one. Through his work, MGOGLKTKO invites others to join the movement. His evocative fusion of hybrid entities, introspective narratives, and sophisticated environments make his experience our extended reality.
