Shipping Lab - Prototype 1: Pride / I'm Not Proud

Video Projection, Software Prototype, Barcode Scanner, Vest, Acrylic and Ink on various Packing Materials


Shipping Lab is a series of artistic research tools that use interactive elements to explore an archive of personal documentary materials, theoretical and poetic mediations around the logistics of consumption and labour in the contemporary, digital age. The first prototype takes the simple act of scanning a package, as put on by low-paid workers around the world every day, to control the visuals of a generative video essay, allowing for new associations and unlikely insights, while both artist and audience are performing the gestures of invisible labour they rely upon daily, within the environment of the installation space.
