The installation uses speculative objects, technologies, and social structures to explore the physical and ethical boundaries of fitness culture. Pragmatic office solutions that optimise the body’s capabilities are accompanied by a dogmatic script encouraging adherence to the social cult of fitness.

Of-Labour Systems explores how designed changes in athletic behaviour generate new social and power relations, as well as how our fitness is being commodified against the background of our banal working routines.

 
 

We follow a day in the life of Eve, a young, eager and ambitous worker. Having recently signed up to Of-Labour Systems work spaces. She finds her self in a community of hard workers pushing their bodies to the limit in the new office space being shaped by the new working class labour. The office installation uses speculative objects, technologies, and social structures to explore the physical and ethical boundaries of fitness culture. Pragmatic office solutions that optimise the body’s capabilities are accompanied by a dogmatic script encouraging adherence to the social cult of fitness. Of-Labour Systems explores how designed changes in athletic behaviour generate new social and power relations, as well as how our fitness is being commodified against the background of our banal working routines.
