Artist Statement

As described by The Swarm Fund
https://www.swarm.fund/

Nanu Berks is a prominent blockchain artist whose creativity is ignited by finding our roads back to freedom through this technology.

She believes in creating large-scale public art murals/installations as efficient ways of continuing the conversations outside of the screens and keyboards.

For the past two years, Nanu has been following the blockchain conference circuit speaking, reporting, and live painting, bridging the gap between non-technical creatives and hyper-technical advances, leveraging the opportunities for self-evolving education that exist in between the two worlds.

  • Originally from Argentina, I have been backpacking living a nomadic lifestyle for most of my life as I can remember it. I was born in San Juan Argentina a very small town and had the privilege of growing up playing in the dirt without much tv or distractions. When I was nine years old I moved into a bigger city, Cordoba and then Buenos Aires and at 13 immigrated into the US. Without any English background and coming from a broken economic system where the Argentinian banks had stolen all of my family's life savings, escaping and traveling became my coping mechanism.

At first I backpacked hoping to detach from society and its rules, lived in jungles with no phone or computers and thought I would never return to civilization. I painted murals and busked on the street and lived an adventurous life hitchhiking across the Americas and a bit of Europe and The Middle East.

Although I feel very differently about some of my extreme thoughts on this book, I still think there is some good imagery to pull from here if you would like to learn more about that time https://www.amazon.com/Backpacker-Evangelists-Its-not-environment-ebook/dp/B019HM6V3Q

Leave it to irony to always be safe in the “dangers” of the world but have a near death experience as soon as I return into the city, after getting hit by a truck while biking in Argentina, I had to move back to the US where my mother was based in Boston to re-learn how to walk and reintegrate into the human experience.

After this happened, I decided to try life the conventional way, I moved to Austin Texas, became a digital nomad creating content and pr strategies for various tech companies, and finally paid rent in one place for a while. This move gave me the chance to confront my escapist tendencies and focus on growing some roots. Finding community and having a place to create art ongoing healed me and so the anarchist rebel in me was able to resurface with new aligned intentions and motivations of serving our collective conscious evolution.

Realizing that resisting technology meant I had to help in this very realm from within, was the most useful of all sparks. I always advocated for education as self-empowerment and learning about blockchain technology as a vehicle for activism and efficient change continues to motivate me to become a better person and positive community building influencer.

Following the crypto conference circuit has brought me back to my roots. I know to some people, especially non-technically inclined creatives, technology might not seem parallel to grounding, Genesis, beginning, however, everything we are is technologic evolution. From the most ancient plant medicines and biochemistry to blockchain decentralization for this paradigm shift. These extreme mirrors are what interest me the most, and so my visual interactive creations are based on encompassing a moment in time with the raw feeling of the energy surrounding an event or project. I intend to in this process create a visual timeline of the blockchain evolution movement as we live it.

At conferences like tokenfes.io, I enjoy creating a contemporary street art collage piece such as the one below, using found objects, often brands' stickers as a visual map of a snapshot in time. In many ways, this decentralized city of nomadic visionaries and entrepreneurs feels very similar to what I imagine was the roaring 20's, and I feel privileged and grateful to have a voice within this transformational human experience.

I do not have the exact roadmap yet, but figuring this out is turning out to be the most fulfilling adventure I have embarked on so far. The amount of support and collaboration in this space is beautiful and I want to help other artists discover their unique ways of living their dream-lives in ways that are abundant for themselves, as well as the healing of our planet

OMG badass. What an adventurous life.

meaw? me? lol thank youuu yass love adventure pur lives are such a trip in this current state time space continuummm, glad to be here together

Hi

Thank you for #introducingyoursef.

I noticed that we both share similar passion towards cryptocurrencies and blockchain technology :)

Im myself quite new in steemit community but I realized that there are few things you could do to have a better start:
Mostly I invested a little bit in STEEM in order to purchase STEEM POWER and STEEM DOLLARS. Why? It's simply important. Without initial investment it will be very hard for you to build reach here and be noticed.

Im not sure if you ever heard about this site: http://steemd.com/@your_username
Example: https://steemd.com/@example
Perhaps you know it already :)

If you will reply to this message (that would allow me to believe that we may develop mutual engagement and help each other) then I will follow you and upvote some of your future posts.

Cheers and good luck, Piotr

·

Thank you for the information. Although I am a long time - but not very well experienced - steemit believer and user, I didn't know about the existence of this site......... THANK YOU, I learned something new today. I will follow you :-)

·
·

hi there! just followed you also, thanks for the support and makes me happy u learend something new through my post ahh i love this community and excited to continue co creating with you!

·
·

Cheers buddy,
I also like your content. I always wanted to visit San Francisco. It's still on my bucket list.

I would love to stay in touch with you a little bit closer as I value your knowledge and your input. And we could support each other on Steemit.
Plus you're very responsive which is absolutely great.

Perhaps you could send me short email to promib.pl@gmail.com

·

following!! thank you <3 although i research a lot and had read about steem power and dollars this si very useful in a practical way, super down to support each other! and will do with the site :)i bought a little steem power but down to buy more for sure. thanks again!

·
·

Thank you for such a kind reply.

Would you mind sending me short email to promib.pl@gmail.com? I would love to be able to keep in touch and support each other on Steemit.

No pressure of course :)

Cheers, Piotr

I hope you dont mind another "short" message :)

I figured that you may not ever know what steem power and steem dollar is and how to use it on steemit for your own benefit.

Check out this article (not mine, but very well written):
https://steemit.com/steem/@kevinwong/why-should-you-consider-accumulating-steem-power

Also if this is not enough then another good explanation can be found here: https://99bitcoins.com/making-money-with-steemit-steem-dollars-and-steem-power-explained/

You can find loads of good material also you youtube.

Let me underline why in my opinion it is important to power up your "steem power". At the beginning you will start your adventure on steemit as so called "minnows". Which simply means that you are "nobody". That's how I see it.
Most of those who invested into steem power are helping (SP) also those who have some SP and they help and benefit each other by upvoting their own posts.
If you have no steem power then your upvote has absolutely no value which make things more difficult, as many bigger players only will not treat you seriously.
That's anyway my own impression here so far.

Cheers, Piotr

·

thank you and absolutely will read that article, i have searched a bt on youtube and excited to continue to learn more everyday, i love the self-empowerment- self educating aspect of blockchain everything and teaching each other, as you said, we have the power an sp of creatig this community and supporting possitive behaviour we would like to grow and reward. thank you for your short messages, i appreciate you

·
·

wow. you are indeed very responsive person :)

steemit needs people like you

One more thing just crossed my mind a moment ago.
Im assuming that you're new here and i would like you to understand that steemit is quite full of spam. Luckily steemit community related to blockchain technology and cryptocurrencies seem to be quite mature.
You will realize that there is many people out there who are trying to help newcomers or simple promote themselfs by sharing their knowledge and experience. I strongly support what they do and I myself decided to spent few minutes a day looking for new members of this society that are having similar interests.
My goal is to help those new members who can really contribute into this community by sharing my experience and by upvoting and commenting future posts.

After all this is still quite new platform and it's up to us to shape our little community.

One more time, welcome on steemit and I wish you all the best!

Cheers,
Piotr

·

thank you, i really appreciate that this is your true nature, i believe @steemit has helped me re focus and i see the change in my own posts from wanting to self promote - even if coming from a good place to share my experience as a blockchain artists to help others - shifting into asking questions and offering raw experiences in text beyond just sharing podcasts i was featured in, etc. the intention is still the same, to help by sharing the experience, but much mor focused on community since ive joined steemit and for this im thankful.

·

I believe that if we want to think big then we need to learn how to work with others and how to build strong communities.

ps.
I would love to stay in touch with you a little bit closer as I value your knowledge and your input. And we could support each other on Steemit.
Plus you're very responsive which is absolutely great.

Perhaps you could send me short email to promib.pl@gmail.com

Yours,
Piotr

Hi @nanuberks, Steemit is a great platform and I am happy to see more and more people aboard. I am going around to support newcomers by upvoting their intro posts. I see that you are not exactly a newcomer but I have upvoted anyway.

I saw some of your previous posts and they look interesting. So I have started to follow you and I look forward to more of your posts. Thanks!

·

hahaha thank you! and yes i kind of did it backwards, i started posting and went post crazy for 2 weeks then someone called me out on never introducing myself so im still kind of new and it has been humbling and healing being formally introduced and supported by this post, i recomend eveyrone to do their intro post too i just was not educated on how to do this. i guess my very first post was a way for me to intro mself with the whole name and usa immigration thing but this is mre formal. i look forward to learning more about security with your posts and supporting as well! thanks again

This is fascinating and wonderful. You have been upvoted and resteemed by @slothicorn in the hopes that more people can come to learn about your very unusual background. I am very interested in learning about your time spent in the jungle, as that has been of interest to me personally. Thank you for your contribution! We are looking forward to all that you create here.

·

aweee gracias!!! this is so kind. i will find the blurb in my kindle book about the jungle and post it and have been thinking alot abut that time lately honestly so excited to know theres interest in hearing about this because it motivates me t write even more! thank you and lookng forward to continue learning about your journey also! <3

You are an amazing, entrepreneurial, artist @nanuberks . We first met at #Tokenfest San Francisco and look forward to more enjoyable meetups to come!!!! Will support you in every way I am able to. Together Strong!!!!
