The title of my project is one man’s trash. The scenario going on in this video show the cycle of apple products the way I see it. In the first scene, there is man who had fell asleep hard at work. This man represents the migrant worker who develops the product. A fellow coworker who tells him his shift is over wakes him. In reality the makers for the apple products do work extremely long hours into the night to where they do not even leave because it wouldn’t make sense to so the bunk with other workers in small rooms (as I tried to re-create in this video). The next man begins to work on the product in the others place, notice he is injured. The apple workers dorms and work conditions are so terrible that they tend to take their own lives for salvation and reps ration for their work. I attempted to re-create that experience by dressing the way I did.
The cycle continues as a minimum wage construction worker comes home after a hard days work with a present for his son. He begins to wrap it and read his mail. He realizes that all his mail is bills and then falls into a depression and tries to drink his tears away. He passes out and then wakes up a while later and stumbles to his son’s room and throws him the present from the apple store; he does this as soon as he uses the restroom and beaks for any pain killers in this cabinet. The young boy overwhelmed with joy tears open the wrapping paper and discards the box. Once the box was thrown into the alley two ruffians notice the devices packaging on the ground and decides to breaks into the house.
They clean the place out and leave the boy crying and bruised. They take their hula to a local pawn shop and spend the money. The pawn shop sells the products on a black market and then the material from the product is recycling to the factory where it came from. The father desperate for money free use of the recent events took a second job at the factory unknowing that the product he begins to builds was made from the exact same material from the product he bought for his son. Realizing in the end it was his son’s he knew he could never afford another one again.
