BIO
kanarinka, a.k.a. Catherine D’Ignazio, is an artist and educator. Her artwork is participatory and distributed – a single project might take place online, in the street and in a gallery, and involve multiple audiences participating in different ways for different reasons. Her practice is collaborative even when she says it’s not. Her artwork has been exhibited at the ICA Boston, Eyebeam, MASSMoCA, and the Western Front among other locations.

----------------------------------
WHAT IS A CORPORATE COMMAND?
A Corporate Command is an instruction work, a call to action in the form of
an imperative:

"Just Do It"
"Turn on the Future"
"Live without Limits"
"Tap into great taste"
"Think different"
"Ride the light"
"Live Like You Mean It"

It is the hypothesis of the Institute for Infinitely Small Things that these
commands, largely and consciously ignored by a public over-saturated with
advertisements, function at the scale of the infinitely small. Tiny events
that do not disturb one's consciousness or disrupt one's identity as "free"
agents, these commands seep under the surface of the individual and lay
claim to the territory of the Deleuzian Virtual. Desire, memory, and future
potentiality become territories for conquest and tactics for social and
political control.

By compiling, tabulating, concretizing and enacting these commands in the
International Database of Corporate Commands (IDCC), the Institute for
Infinitely Small Things seeks to better understand the mechanisms behind
this deployment of power and its larger cultural ramifications.

BOSTON, MA & INTERNET, February 4, 2005

The Institute for Infinitely Small Things announced its new research
initiative today, THE INTERNATIONAL DATABASE OF CORPORATE COMMANDS
(IDCC). This research database is open to submissions of corporate
commands from researchers around the world. Researchers from around the
world can upload text (multi-language support), metadata and
photographic documentation of corporate commands in context.

WHAT IS A CORPORATE COMMAND?
A Corporate Command is an instruction work, a call to action in the
form of an imperative:

"Just Do It"
"Turn on the Future"
"Live without Limits"
"Tap into great taste"
"Think different"
"Ride the light"
"Live Like You Mean It"

It is the hypothesis of the Institute for Infinitely Small Things that
these commands, largely and consciously ignored by a public
over-saturated with advertisements, function at the scale of the
infinitely small. Tiny events that do not disturb one's consciousness
or disrupt one's identity as "free" agents, these commands seep under
the surface of the individual and lay claim to the territory of the
Deleuzian Virtual. Desire, memory, and future potentiality become
territories for conquest and tactics for social and political control.

By compiling, tabulating, concretizing and enacting these commands in
the International Database of Corporate Commands (IDCC), the Institute
for Infinitely Small Things seeks to better understand the mechanisms
behind this deployment of power and its larger cultural ramifications.

EVENTS & EXPEDITIONS:
The Institute for Infinitely Small Things will be using the IDCC to
lead a series of public expeditions during the 2005 Boston Cyberarts
Festival in April-May. The Institute's temporary laboratory will be
situated at Space 200 at 200 State Street in Fanueil Hall. Please check
the website for exact times and locations of expeditions:

PARTNERSHIPS:
The Institute welcomes requests for Research Partnerships from
institutions and individuals engaging with similar questions. The IDCC

publishing, syndicating or linking to any research that is relevant to
our mission.
