Make Your Admin Noisy As Hell

Make Your Admin Noisy as Hell is an artwork exploring the contemporary conditions of labour. At a time when the boundaries between work and life are blurred, and the definition of what is considered work and what is not, Make Your Admin Noisy As Hell puts into scrutiny small and rudimentary gestures of hidden administration as its starting point. The ever-filling email inbox is treated as an interface between the interior and exterior worlds. 

 

Following on the concept of surplus labour coined by Karl Marx, the additional and uncompensated labour done by a worker, the artwork expands on it in the contemporary context of cognitive labour and technological landscape.
