Mark Creegan

Mark's statement:

Copy machines and cork boards!
They go together like cabbage rolls and coffee!
My plan is to create a participatory project with daily interventions involving the copier and the board.
Each business day, a new copy will appear in the center of the board, sort of like a daily announcement. This project will develop very organically and the premise may even alter as contingencies warrant.
Ultimately, I hope this will be something everyone in the office enjoys, that it engenders either a smile to deep philosophical contemplation. I welcome any comments, suggestions, observations, and thoughts. I can be reached at markcreegan[at]yahoo[dot]com.
Thank you.

The development of Mark's project will be documented and updated here on the blog on a weekly basis. Be sure come back to check on the progress.

On Monday, June 22, Mark gave 5 day notice  that he'd be leaving his position at Bailey Browne CPA & Assoc.  His letter was printed out and posted on the kork board along with all rest of his output of the past two months:

Re: 5 day notice

This is to inform you that I am submitting my 5 day notice. I promise to clean my work area (i.e. corkboard) before I leave. I would stay longer to help train my replacement, but since he or she is just another artist, he or she will be doing whatever he or she wants to do (commie hippie!) I am sure nothing he or she does will be half as brilliant ( they will probably just send in requests to photocopy people's bums- how original!). By the way, if someone comes around saying he is a "consultant", thats NOT an artist!

Don't expect to much work from me during my last week, I will probably just work from home and email work that someone else (Gina) will do. My lunch breaks are going to be like 4 hours! I may even get a pedicure!

I was hoping to move on to better things but the economy nixed my plans to do art intervention work on the stock board at the NYSE. I guess the clipboard at Dairy Queen will have to do ( I am sure to do wonderful things with sprinkles!)

I am sure someone will want me to do an exit interview. Feel free to email me. I will answer as well as I can, sobriety contingent.

Hasta La vista (in about 4days)!
