My work is deeply influenced by architecture. During my five years of undergraduate architectural studies, I was required to design to specification. I was allocated land for new builds or renovations, and the renderings of buildings must be rendered in a superior style to promote purchase. I couldn't help but start thinking about the role I played in this process.
Workers follow the design drawings and physically construct transit and production spaces within the limited working space, and then we are transported by constructed transit space, becoming a high-speed labour force, shuttling through various beautifully packaged buildings and into these spaces in constant production, wanting to occupy the space to the maximum, homogenising and hierarchising spontaneously or forcibly.
Capitalist relations are reproduced through the organisation of urban space as a vehicle. So I make the space for the transportation of labour power and render a silver metallic surface to make it appear unusable and inaccessible, to isolate the glorified architecture from the obscurity of people, to explore how space can feel different if the socialised space is stripped of its sociality.
