Blog Post Reading #4 + AnthropoScenes

Here I am reading another blog post. This post was written on March 26, 2006, the day after I did my first Human Body Project performance. It's entitled "Post-nakedness (1): support and embracing awkwardness"

Also, here are some videos from the AnthropoScene Collective's first two AnthropoScenes!

AnthropoScene #1 + Blog Post Reading #3

I've decided to join the nascent AnthropoScene Collective and, instead of Vulnerability Vigils, commit to creating collaborative AnthropoScenes once a month.
I'm not healthy enough to do both. And this new venture, for me, is a welcome (collaborative!) continuation of explorations in global/individual vulnerability since starting the Human Body Project more than 10 years ago.

Hey everybody living through the Anthropocene Epoch and 6th Extinction so far! 

The AnthropoScene Collective invites you to join us in our first public action on Boxing Day.

The action begins at 2pm on Boxing Day at the giant Sequoia tree
On the north side of Centennial Square (Douglas Street)
And proceeds south through downtown Victoria
Looping back to the Sequoia by 3pm

We are artists/activists committed to staging an "AnthropoScene" at least once a month in a public place.

Help Keith?/Reading Blog Posts 2: "Porn/Non-Porn"

I hope anyone reading this will consider helping out a beautiful person and member of the Victoria downtown street art scene and a longtime Human Body Project community member.

My dear friend Keith Jenkins, 61, had open heart surgery in the fall. He's still unable to work and needs rest. Keith is one of many Canadians who lives from pay cheque to pay cheque and has very little savings.

I know everyone is sending money every which way and it's that spending time of year. But if you have even a little to help Keith, please do!
The one and only Keith!

Here's the funding web address:

Also, here's the latest YouTube video of me reading my blog posts.

I'm following a creative impulse and recording myself reading my blog. We'll see where it takes me...
