Project Skive: Can a Multimedia Art Exhibit Function as an Ethnography of Workplace Resistance?

Creative Approaches to Research
Volume 3 Issue 1 (2010)

Abstract: Project Skive is an interactive website that premiered in June-July 2008 as an office cubicle installation in a curated art exhibit on work-life balance. Reflecting on the process of collecting and displaying data via a medium that is itself a creatively constructed and 'performed' piece of media art, this article critically evaluates Project Skive with reference to Willis and Trondman's 'Manifesto For Ethnography' (2000) and studies that have attempted to define virtual ethnographic methodology. In addition, the article draws on the notion of performative sociology, drawing on measures such as relational aesthetics, which have been proposed as a means of evaluating academic excellence in the social sciences.
