Opening at Postmasters Gallery, New York, December 7, 2019.
A film work of cinematic scale, Cleaner traces the creative awakening of a maintenance worker. Her movements are framed within the routines of manual labor yet set against the work environment of the tech economy. The film, shot on location at the headquarters of Kickstarter, juxtaposes the physicality of traditional labor with the abstraction of technological work through its use of soaring camera work, precise framing, and choreography inspired by every day movement. This fractured narrative exposes the tight grip of corporate social space and the precarity inherent in all forms of work today.
The first blockchain-based project commissioned by a major US museum. We made a 16mm film and donated it to the Whitney Museum. We then created 50 tradable blockchain-based tokens that represented being named as one of the donors of the work.
