The Power of the Working Class, 2014

Installation (electronic devices, bubble machines, wooden structures, printed documentation)

Twenty-four different labour rights demonstrations were recorder between 2010-2014 during the anti-austerity movement of 15-M in Spain. The audio is translated into bubbles through a programmed device. The software synchronises the intensity of the protest to the bubble making machine, the louder the audio of the protest is the more bubbles are produced. The Power of the Working Class attempts to show the futility of protest within a system that remains unchanging. 

Work selected for the exhibition “Future Generation Art Prize”, 2014 Pinchuk Art Center, Kiev, Ukraine.
