Sara Diamond is currently entering the final year of her PhD research and dissertation creation. Her PhD research is entitled Endurance, Performance, Surveillance: Crafting Creative Collaboration. Diamond establishes twenty-four hour face-to-face, moderated first-time encounters between two researchers from different disciplines operate as performances for outside viewing audiences who link in using communications and surveillance technology.

The researchers/performers become ˇ°action researchersˇ±, invested in the process and outcomes of the performance. They attempt to solve specific intellectual problems; they resolve challenges in the use of technology within their performance and negotiate their relationship to the outside moderators and viewers. The societal and methodological expectations associated with the terms ˇ°artistˇ± and ˇ°scientistˇ± change and merge over the twenty-four hour period. Over the course of the performance, they share approaches and vocabulary. They leave the Habituation Cage with new concepts, creative results, potential inventions and a strong identification as a team. This research draws from performance and video art practices linked to ethnographic and action research investigation.
