BYOF found multiple software testing firms offering affordable testing services but for them, the risks are too high as more testing does not necessarily mean quality.
Raoul Nanavati, CEO of BYOF Studios, stated : "We could have gone with other providers, but we chose XBOSoft because of their reputation and their specialization not just in testing, but in the entire quality process.
Philip Lew, CEO of XBOSoft, added : "We are delighted to work with BYOF Studios on the release of their first mobile games series, exciting times ahead for them and we're determined to ensure functionality, usability, UX, performance and compatibility is at its highest quality possible given the short time frame mobile development allows."
Joining in the staging of BYOF were eleven additional "performers"--Richard Aldrich, Alisha Kerlin, Daniel Lepkoff, Charles Mayton, Patrick Palermo, Patrick Price, Woody Sullender, Sakura Shimada, Jean-Marc Superville Sovak, Sergei Tcherepnin, and Patricia Treib.
BYOF's disordered arrangement of plywood, projection screens, and paper walls, along with a nightmare of cameras, speakers, tripods, and cords, prohibited any one "painting-action" from being consumed in its sensorial totality.
While BYOF included several known artists, not one was directed to make a signature work.
Art historian and critic Eric de Bruyn describes this shift as central to artistic production since post-Minimalism; recalling Dan Graham's observation on a Bruce Nauman performance, de Bruyn writes, "The space does not contain the performance; rather it is the performance that constitutes the space." In BYOF, the actions physically moved from inside to outside and back again: from lobby to sidewalk, from preparatory to presentational, from actor to audience.
