Imagine a world where artists create work following modern business protocol: contracts come alive, body parts equal ad space, meeting memorandums and faxes become merchandise and are auctioned off to the highest bidder. IPO offers the spectator a look at the creative and administrative forces shaping the arts in the 21st century, engaging the public in a conversation which combines art, business, movement and visual/time-based media. This is the world of IPO—Initial Public Offering, Intellectual Property Ownership or Insane Performance Opportunity?

Small Stage, Big Ideas

IPO - The Scan Artist

Scan Artist is a time based performance installation where spectators turn into spectactors inadvertently becoming part of the IPO product. Dr. O , IPO spokemans, steals the identities of his consumers through a detailed and interactive interview process. These interviews are documented and digitally processed via video tape and scanner culminating by a powerful cathartic moment the annihilation of a photo copy machine. IPO The Scan Artist is a component of IPO - The Insane Performance Opportunity which offers the spectator an eccentric and profound look at the creative and administrative forces shaping the arts in the 21st century. IPO engages the public in a conversation which interfaces the vocabulary of art with business, and movement with visual/ time-based media.

Peformance: Octavio Campos

Performance Length: 2 hours
