UPstream: HowtoCorp

“There’s a double deception happening….. “

Internet marketing, identity squatting and surveillance meet politics – head on. The story of Michael Green/Grant Shapps MP.

The innovative UPstream seed funding programme posed the question “What kinds of performance work can we create which is native to both digital and offline spaces?” We commissioned three artists to develop projects which approached the question in different ways. This documentation film covers the development of “Michael Green / HowtoCorp” by artist, Simon Farid.

Film by Ben Johnston. UPstream was made possible with funds and expertise from SHPLive and greenhouse. SHPLive is supported using funds from the National Lottery through Arts Council England.
