Statement: The Meaning of Work
Work is always being done. But where, and by whom, and to what end? Mixing ideas of surveillance, remote control and the atmosphere of the Cold War, The Meaning of Work is an interactive audio piece featuring original video loops and audio sampled from The Conet Project (a collection of “numbers stations.”). By selecting objects on the desktop, the viewer can induce the hidden operator to work: infinitely transcribing, typing and recomposing the layered, haunted soundtrack.
