Like Art--When Your Work Makes a Statement...It's Recognizable

When an Art Form physically engulfs a musician, it is a unique experience.  As a spectator you're impacted by a visual and listening experience which can be harmonious or divergent, or somewhere in between.

Thankful Tree, a musician performing in a unique museum setting, among the art structures--was that experience for me recently. 

How this relates to recruitment is not a stretch.  When we we consider a candidate's experience, among other things, we consider the work environment(s) they've been exposed to and attempt to decipher their work performance and impact on the individual and team level.

As each individual brings a unique experience base--their exposure to unique workplaces makes an equally important statement.

Tino - I meant to comment on this post a few days ago. Please fill me in- what exactly is going on here?  Are the lights a art sculpture? or part of the musician's instrument? Either way a very cool visual.

Thanks for asking.

To answer your question, Tim—the large lit tubular art sculpture was being exhibited at an Art Museum in St. Louis, Mo.  As you know, when art museums feature a new significant artist they usually have an opening exhibition with wine & cheese & classical music.  I was attracted to this particular exhibition because, rather than classical music, the museum invited a local musician, I happen to be a fan of--Thankful Tree, to perform.

This second photo (next under) gives a better rendition of a "lit-tubular art sculpture” with a musician playing his music within the structure.  There is an audience sitting just to the left along with others wandering about.  The blurred visual of the musician suggests movement that could not be avoided since museums frown on flash-photography, particularly on lit-up exhibits.   

My example about the importance of a candidate’s work experiences and places of work, and how we recruiters try to evaluate the dual uniqueness and value of each (apologies for getting too philosophical here)—I selected an out-of-the-ordinary photo, I took four years ago, that makes my point in a creative way. 

To repeat--Work performance + Work Place allow for making an important and Recognizable Statement—one that can motivate a recruiter to highly recommend such a candidate.
