WORKERS OF TOMORROW
"We don't want your jobs, we want your souls". Workers of Tomorrow is an artwork of socialist science fiction exposing a near future where humanity has been lost through the metamorphosis of jobs.
Mirroring Fredrich Engels’ depiction of ‘Social Murder’ in 1845, this work of art depicts the world of 2099, where our unique humanity has been drained through digital colonialism. Poverty and hoarded resources force our workers into capitalist zombification, void of individualist humanity, undemonstrative to avoid offense, to remain productive.
This work was created utilising innovative technologies in collaboration with Artificial Intelligence, creating Augmented Reality 3D Digital Sculptures and accompanying fictionalised text.
