Tempo Tempo

Double channel video and a kinetic object, SI, 2014

By combining historical and contemporary materials, statistical data and private statements, the visual and the acoustic, Tempo Tempo conveys a narrative on accelerating the production process and enhancing work performance in order to increase competitiveness and improve profits. The video contains archival footage by Frank Bunker Gilbreth, a pioneer of time and motion study, and contemporary footage from a factory where workers talk about the consequences of robotisation. Their statements are complemented with statistical data.

Part of the group exhibition Cheers to Women! 25 Years of Film and Video.
