The phenomenon of sugar addiction caused by work stress is not new to tech workers. Emotional eating caused by stress has negatively impacted the health of many tech workers.
"Sweetsmile" is an electronic snack distributed to employees by the company as one of the Job benefits. It helps employees taste sweetness without consuming calories, enabling them to work long hours and maintain good health.
At the same time, "Sweetsmile" also associates the negative emotions caused by stress with facial expressions, and realizes the function of forcing a smile through an exquisite structural design. When employees use "Sweetsmile" due to work pressure, they will smile involuntarily and cannot express their true emotions through facial expressions. Through such means, the company creates a falsely happy office atmosphere.
From controlling diet to further controlling the expression and transmission of emotions, this project attempts to explore the deep meaning of "Job benefits".
Are "Job benefits" real benefits? Or is this just one of the means by which capitalism controls labor?
Control your diet, control your expression, control your life.
Just be controlled.
