Prospect Revenge

Prospect Revenge

Prospect Revenge is a distorted elevator pitch, one man spectacle, a lecture with stand-up and lecture elements dealing with notions of attention economies, technology and investments. Networking with start-up communities in Liverpool, London and Warsaw, this project explores the landscape where entrepreneurial desires, hopes, failures, creativity, and ambitions meet. Using a blend of performance and technology based art, Narkus challenges audiences to question the accepted virtues and values of technology start-up culture.

This work was realised within the framework of the European Media Art Platforms (EMAP) programme at FACT (GB) with support of the Creative Europe Culture Programme of the European Union.
