bkeepr1 aka bioni samp – ZOO – M – EARTH – A series of conversations with nature….
LESS: As an artist I have had to start again. bkeepr1 is a new alias for Bioni Samp in the CV age. Due to my health conditions I’m deemed vunerable to CV infections, so in the UK, I’m ‘on lockdown inside’ for a initial 12 weeks. This is my live performance, ‘diary’ of how I escaped mentally by going into the past by editing my old video and audio memories of ‘the outside’. Videos of being in remote nature spaces.
MORE: While I was editing these memories. I started to hear birds in the trees, my for the first time ever outside my London home. I also noticed that I did’nt have to take my asthma inhauler as soon as I got up. Or smell the sooty pollution coming in the open window every morning. Bees and other insects would fly in unexpectedly, not scared away by traffic noise. Nature it seemed was having a holiday in urban spaces. I discovered that it was happening all over the world due to CV. Nature it seemed was getting a pause on human encrochment. Or so i thought. But now I hear CV is being used to cover up deforestisation and resource extraction (mining) in protected areas all over the world. This is also my live performance, ‘diary’ of how I came back down to earth (after watching two ‘Super Moons’ during Lockdown). I’ve incorporate these changes into my videos and added this too. This live performance was to be streamed live but was pre-recorded due to personal reasons. Enjoy… Shown on the Main Stage at Stadwerkstatt at 11pm – Midnight.
