Check out Edgar Degar's Waiting for the Client. That is how I sometimes feel about this industry.

What is going on in the left-most 30% of this? There's a yellow blob in the upper left that I can't process spatially, and then there's a black wedge along the edge of the canvas. Is it someone standing in the room?

Prostitutes in brothel. They are sitting on yellow sofa and waiting for their customers.

I recognized that in the right 70%. Is the blob in the upper left a yellow couch too?

I believe so. Are you into couch?

I think the feeling is best expressed in prose through "I feel like a prostitute waiting for a John," but I don't know what that feels like bc I have never done that. Am I missing some nuance here?

Some of my coworkers and I always joke around that we are whoring ourselves whenever we are on bench. Even though we are employed, we have to watch our utilization ratio and selling ourselves with the name of networking. I'm not a huge fan of networking so maybe that is the feeling only subjective to me.

But you seem to bring different perspective when you watch the art piece. I tend to focus mainly on ambience but you analyze the structure of the piece.

I'm hoping to speak with someone that has extensive video production expertise. I recently completed an *enormous* video project for my employer in-house that included over 40 interviews and over 2,500 minutes of footage. The end-product was almost an hour long. My belief is that if they had hired an outside agency, this video would have cost twice my salary. I'm looking to use this project as key reasoning in a salary increase and I'm looking for evidence to back up my assumptions.
