On May Day, an artist paid Turkers to take a break from labor and reflect on that break. And the results were presented at an art installation.
The article raises some interesting questions to me, especially if you’re being paid, isn’t it labor? I am not sure I’m buying into Scholz’s ‘play/bor’ idea that is presented here.
The artist also paid for videos of people chanting ‘om’.
Like Scholz’s gray space between play and labor, this collection of digital chants, compiled from a virtual job board, showcases the voices of disembodied strangers making a sound that can accompany one’s return to her body at a vibrational frequency found throughout the natural world.
