I just came across Denis Beaubois, an Australian multidisciplinary artist whose work, Currency - Division of Labor might be of interest to researchers here.

It is a series of video/performance works that use the division of labor model in capitalism as a structural tool for performance.

From his website:

Video Journal of Performance - How Long a Thing Takes: an invitation to think duration

Another edit similar to my other video - this version has been published in the peer-reviewed Video Journal of Performance, and focuses on the training aspect of the work.
This video documents the performance How Long a Thing Takes: an invitation to think duration. As the solo performer moves in acute slow-motion, the experience of the performance becomes one of having duration rendered sensible. The passage of living time is the force of the performance. Instead of focusing on the spatiality of time as a dimension, time as a process of change as duration comes to the forefront. Its own time-specificity emerges as notions of slowness and repetition take on new meanings. The slowness performs the heterogeneous continuity of duration and repetition becomes a tensioning of the force of duration instead of an object-based idea of multiple quantities. Emerging as an exploration of the performances of Tehching Hsieh and the philosophy of Henri Bergson, this deceptively simple performance mirrors Christian Marclay's The Clock but takes its mode of temporality to be duration and its method to be performance. The video that you will see includes not only documentary footage of the performance but reformats that footage into a matrix of simultaneities. The entire of the 1.5 hour performance is shown. Each of the two acts is segmented into 25 1.75 minute pieces and shown all at the same time. Look closely and you will see that each segment is different. It also includes a companion video to the performance, which is a static shot focused on a hand drawing out and writing the ideas behind the conceptual performance.

Nik Wakefield has performed and presented research in various sites across the United States and the United Kingdom independently and with groups such as Heritage Arts, Every House Has a Door, Punchdrunk and The Conciliation Project. He has been awarded distinction level B.F.A. and M.A. degrees from Boston University and Aberystwyth University, respectively. His PhD, for which Royal Holloway University of London awarded him the Reid Scholarship, concerns the time-specificity of performance through practice-based research into the relationship between the act of performance and lived time.
