Cult of the Cor[porat]e [Per]form[ance] Art[ist] - Shoot the Bird (2002)

Performance has become a key term that in turns applys to experimental art, worker productivity, and functionality of technical, corporate, and military systems. Extrapolating from the purist corporatist bent, when we call Performance artistic, it references a cultural production that is meaningful and has defineable roles in relation to the subjects of experience. Within a corporate context, Performance as artistic must be expressive within the experimental art domain, but also address issues of productivity, repeatability, and functionality. In the greater cultural context, Performance as a work of art does not exist. What does exist are services (design, labor, practicies, management, etc) that we call art.

Performance has become a key term that in turns applys to experimental art, worker productivity, and functionality of technical, corporate, and military systems. Extrapolating from the purist corporatist bent, when we call Performance artistic, it references a cultural production that is meaningful and has defineable roles in relation to the subjects of experience. Within a corporate context, Performance as artistic must be expressive within the experimental art domain, but also address issues of productivity, repeatability, and functionality. In the greater cultural context, Performance as a work of art does not exist. What does exist are services (design, labor, practicies, management, etc) that we call art. We explore these services as discrete departments working towards a holistic goal.

In Allan Kaprow's book of essays "The Blurring of Art and Life", he is interested in an intersection between art and life...mainly, does a line have to exist at all ... maybe it is possible to bend art space to the Life Standard or life space to the Art Standard. The Cor[porat]e [Per]form[ance] Art[ist] explores this line, and extends the line into virtual space or Virtual Standard.

On a personal note, we are interested in exploring ego - and personality. Of bringing "soul" in corporate environments. Of empowering the creative professional.

First Performance Service.... (a tongue in cheek exploration)
