Performance Studies Methods - nyu.edu

We will start this lecture by first talking about the performance of our programs. We will then delve into the domain of Liveness issues, which have substantial effects on the performance of our code. Performance In this lecture, we consider the following aspects of performance:

So, we would like our programs to perform well, and then a bit better. In this course we do not presume to talk about all the issues related to performance, but one issue comes to mind in the context of the previous lectures: Liveness. Liveness issues arise mainly due to safety techniques. Liveness Liveness is a general property you would normally like to have in your programs. It is about your program actually doing something useful. Liveness can be summarized thus: "Something useful eventually happens within an activity".

Alice and Bob may still be moving to their left and right, but not one of them managed to pass. This is called a LiveLock : both Alice and Bob are doing something, potentially useful, but there is no global progress!

In  Liveness  , I talk a great deal about how various forms of live performance have become more and more like mediatised events. Barney represents the other side of that equation: a provocative example of work in a mediatised form that is most meaningful, at least for me, when understood as a version of live art.

I think there was a sense or a fear or an anticipation that Lady Gaga was going to use her Super Bowl LI halftime performance to do something overtly political. 

I'm not sure what we were looking forward to. Did we think she was going to come out bedecked in raw meat or in some alien egg, or that she was going to deface a picture of our president or some American iconography?

Instead, Lady Gaga did what was probably the most political thing she could have done: She spent 15 minutes being Lady Gaga.
