A new performance work you might find interesting, taking place on the Bristol Suspension Bridge.

September 13th & 14th  4.00 - 4.30pm

Perhaps more common a sight than a truly wild animal, is a luridly dressed hiker.

Join Alexander Stevenson for an unusual walking tour of Clifton Suspension Bridge, exploring what we mean by ‘wild’. 
At the point where city meets countryside, bear witness to unusual creatures in the distant landscape. 

Ticket includes free telescope and an audio copy of the performance. Dress in hiking gear with as much neon and 
fluorescent colour as possible. Meet at the Visitor Information Centre.

Alexander Stevenson is an artist at BV Studios.

Exhibition text: As Far As The Archives Can See

The world stops again and watches itself watching a breach in the seamless surface of a world of equal access and ability to reproduce. What else is there but to record and store? Where else to look but back at ourselves?

In a world of balloon-enabled connectivity and donkey-driven solar panel-powered water purification units, our product is our progress.

The couple on the beach turns to face the setting sun. Each with one arm raised they capture the moment forever. A thousand years later that sunset has become a landmark; the rocks a monument to a moment in time that was never really a moment at all.

The trees remain. And the image’s unbroken reign stretches back as far as the archives can see.

A watermarked photograph of a 3D printed copyright symbol is undone by a screenshot, a copy and paste, and a picture of a repost of a blog about a tweet about a tweet about copyright and then it’s lost.

Are they crease-marks on the screen?

We build that we may continue to call ourselves builders, and we store that we may recall how we built, from Egypt to Lasceaux, in formats that neither human nor artificial brain could ever fathom.

A wave looks the same from above and below.

What’s yours is mine.
