Rise N Grind

 
Automation, Labour, Future 
Film, duration 1:12  

Smart devices and automatic systems are streamlining the everyday, but what do these systems of convenience conceal?

Rise ‘n’ Grind illustrates a not so distant future world of work, asking what it means to be useful amidst automated systems and how our pursuit for convenience shifts labour out of sight. 

Completed with Stan Bidston Casey during artist residancy at Superfluous Gallery, London. 
Exhibited at Bodies of Work, June 2021
