Advances in Lyrical Consumer Research: Collaborative Circles and Paradessential Poetics

This brand culture research project explores the expressions of rebellion and questing for creativity in small dynamic friendship circles and their relevance for a vibrant urban reputation. The poetic texture and the schismatic core of the city as a brandscape are staged in three embodied acts. An explorative case study follows a collaborative creative circle of musicians in action. Next, paradessentials of brand performativity are sourced from key interpreters. In ethno-poetics there is no hypothesis up for validation; the project concludes with individual evocations, as a sequential thickening of unresolved paradoxes of the city’s ambiguous reputation, in newly commissioned poetry.
