ADRIAN MELIS

The making of forty rectangular pieces for a floor construction

In Cuba, due to a shortage of materials to produce, the workers of a state-run enterprise spend their workday just sitting, waiting for their working time to come to an end. Taking advantage of this still, idle time, the artist conceived a kind of "working chorus", with the intention of giving life to the factory, of generating a new form of movement, of a virtual and fictional nature. During the whole workday - from 8 to 5 pm - the workers reproduced using their body (mouth, voice, hands) the usual noises heard during the functioning of the factory, such as concrete makers, mixing machines, shovels, trucks, wheelbarrows. The video plays with the ironic contrast between the immobility of the images and the chaotic noise artificially reproduced.
