Emotional Labour (2017)

2 min 5 secSingle channel / Digital Video / Colour / Silent

"Assuming the role of a technological empath, a distracted holographic figure contemplates the role technology plays in regulating work that would be considered emotional labour if performed by humans. Part of a series of work that is based on the metaphorical premise that technological objects have the capacity to feel."
