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.
