(A reactionary stop motion & found archival footage diptych to human rights and labor issues with Foxconn factories in China. I construct a modern art table out of the cardboard of an iMac shipping box to fit the aesthetic like that of an Apple store.)
What can a society do to react against death caused by spectacle if society itself is submerged in spectacle? The answer is difficult. A possible retort lies in not reversing the infallible tide but flowing with it to unseen channels. Honoring the packages keeping safe the jewels we receive on a global scale would pay tribute to who we know suffers without absconding the things they suffered for.
