release date 2010

The first series of videos, more commonly known as the preludes, beginning on December 4, 2009. It consists of six videos titled with a series of numbers. When indexed into the alphabet, these spell out words such as "educational", "i am", "it's me", "mandragora", "officinarum" and "welcome home". Mandragora officinarum refers to the mandrake root, which when fresh or dry may cause hallucination.


says what?

Each of the first six clips end with a drawing and sound of a different animal (goat, owl, whale, bee, llama, and monkey). The first three were originally released with video footage of the respective animals, derived from existing YouTube videos. The woman who owns the video of the goat birth flagged the video to YouTube staff, leading to its removal. The videos were subsequently re-uploaded without this footage. iamamiwhoami's videos continue to refer to other YouTube videos by posting links in the description of uploads, featuring subjects such as a news segment for the release party of high-end bottled water Bling H20, a clip featuring a child preacher, as well as a child beauty pageant.

Animal code 2

Having blogged about the videos, MTV journalist James Montgomery received a package by messenger, which included a lock of blond hair, a piece of bark, and a pictogram of the six animals with the question "says what?" furthering the mystery; the sixth clip ends with the woman in the video whispering "Y".
