BSA Special Feature: 5 Minutes with: Plotbot Ken via I Love Graffiti.de
Plotbot Ken first caught our eye in the remnants of a factory full of environmental and personal hazards. His is an apocalyptic view of humanity and our shortsighted predilection for creating destruction and for poisoning the earth. But somehow he has made something positive from our dire idiocy. You don’t have to speak German to enjoy this video, or to understand the symbolism of his recurring gas mask motif, or his genius for placement.
Nadia Vadori-Gauthier: Une Minute De Danse Par Jour (One Minute of Dance Per Day)
In reaction to terrorist acts, dancer Nadia Vadori-Gauthier began a program to dance for one minute a day.
I dance as one manifests, like a small but daily one, to work for a living poetry, to act by the sensitive against the violence of certain aspects of the world. It felt like a series of small acts that might possibly prove to reconnect the disconnections in her own society. She sites the wisdom of a Chinese proverb to talk about her repeating acts of expression in the public sphere over many years: “Dripping water ends up going through stone.”
This compilation of her works can help us see that the aggregate of many small acts can indeed be phenomenal.
Ron English: The Road To Heaven (Tribute to Daniel Johnston)
Putting his thoughts and emotions in visual vocabulary, artist Ron English gives this personal offering as a moving tribute to the great singer/ songwriter Daniel Johnston, who passed away last autumn.
