The Bonkers Devotional is a 3-channel video installation. In this room within a room, Keading interacts with a trained bear named Bonkers. Two huge, bright, silent projections of Quaking Aspen Trees wrap around a small, dark 13' x 13' room. Inside, two life-sized projections of Keading and Bonkers play at right angles.
This installation premiered in the Videoformes Festival at La Tôlerie in Clermont-Ferrand, France. It has traveled to the Bass Museum, Florida; The Japanese American National Museum, Los Angeles; Angles Gallery Los Angeles and the Sweeney Gallery, Riverside. A document and interview of this installation is on the MOCATv West Coast Video Art Channel.
