The title Dymaxion Homofile is a play on words of Dymaxion Chronofile, architect Buckminster Fuller\’s very large scrapbook which he documented his life every 15 minutes from 1920 to 1983. LET RIP: DYMAXION HOMOFILE is a performance poem about what it was like for me to realise I am gay when I was surrounded by mainstream heteronormative pop culture in 1990s homophobic Britain. The words of the poem will directly reference images within a scrapbook that I kept when I was a teenager in the 1990s for 5+ years – my personal private archive of images that in many ways helped to shape my understanding of (gay) male desire. These scrapbook images form the basis for the moving imagery that as part of the live online Zoom performance. Find out more about the work here: https://leecampbellartist.blogspot.com/p/poetry.html
