Livesystems, originally founded as Livesystems.net, is an on-going Internet Business Art project by Marni Kotak. Frustrated by the lack of images in advertising that related to her own life, Kotak developed Livesystems in 1999, while working as an Internet marketing executive at the height of the Internet boom.
The mission of Livesystems is to create an economy driven by the everyday life and desires of Marni Kotak. The organization offers advertising solutions called Livesystems Solutions (hypertext link to Livesystems Solutions), such as her Write Your Message On My Body: Place Your Ad Here body advertising campaign (hypertext link to Write Your Message On My Body: Place Your Ad Here page), Livesystems (Trans)actions (hypertext link to Livesystems (Trans)actions) , or large-scale C-print documentations of Kotak engaging in her everyday activities, and Livesystems Products, which are products developed by Kotak for her daily use branded under the Livesystems name.
Over the years, Kotak has continued to work on Livesystems while developing many new bodies of work, and plans to keep it going throughout her life, honing and modifying it as needed to fit her changing lifestyle.
