THE MAKING OF 40 RECTANGULAR PIECES FOR A FLOOR CONSTRUCTION

Due to a shortage of materials necessary to carry out the production process, the workers of a governmental company spend their workday just sitting, doing nothing, waiting for the end of the working hours.
Taking advantage of this still, empty time, the artist conceived a kind of “working chorus”, with the intention of giving life to the factory: each worker did imitate the sound of a machine and, together with all the other workers, they gave the impression that the factory was actively producing bricks. The video plays with the ironic contrast between the immobility of the images and the chaotic noise artificially reproduced.
