Screen Culture is two-screen video focusing on our current system of (over) production and (over) consumption. The left-hand side features factory workers in the global south whose physical labor enables our supposedly immaterial economies and the right side features informal workers scavenging for gold and other minerals from discarded electronic items shipped from the global north. Echoing the theme of the video, the work itself is built up of found video material –clips scoured and repurposed form disparate sources (including news, documentary, online) and resolutions. An original soundtrack accompanies the image material.
