Studio

We are non-hierarchical and eclectic in our aesthetic interests, resisting divisions between high and low or pop and experimental. Our work comes about through personal engagement and commitment to ideas. We are driven by a compulsive desire to collaborate across different histories and expertise—involving not only artists—but also statisticians, anthropologists, philosophers, architects, computational biologists, engineers and experts in other fields.

Our efforts have taken numerous forms including an underwater music concert, a database driven theatrical performance, a hallucinogenic fog and strobe light installation, a live animation pipeline for a Shakespeare production, and a video installation for the web, to name just a few.

Non Profit Expansion

As part of our current effort to strengthen and further develop FuturePerfect Creative Studio, we are working to expand our capacity by generating an independent non-profit organization: FuturePerfect Initiatives. Having both an LLC and a 501(c)3 will give us more flexibility to successfully execute a wider variety of projects with a larger set of tools at our disposal. The primary goal of our non-profit entity will be to support our own creative efforts – as well as those of select partners and clients – with an approach that includes fundraising and Board oversight.

In 2019, we are celebrating our 10th anniversary by solidifying and rolling-out a series of institution-building steps that will ensure our sustainability and success for many years to come. If you are interested, we would be happy to discuss details of our strategic plan (currently being finalized), ranging from the implementation of practices and protocols to goals and tactics in many areas, including personnel, marketing/communications, and the launch of FuturePerfect Initiatives in 2020.

At this time, we are respectfully seeking financial support to help us realize our organizational development objectives. We would be extremely grateful if you assist us with your gift at any level that is right for you. Every commitment will be truly helpful and greatly appreciated.
