Capitalism: Child Labor
(2006, DVD, 3 min)
A stereograph celebrating factory production of thread. Many bobbins of thread coil in a great sky-lit factory space, the many machines manned by a handful of people. Manned? Some are children. I activate the double-photograph, composer Rick Reed suggests the machine din. Your heart bleeding for the kids? The children will surely be rescued and by their bosses! “Boys”, they will say, “Have we got a war for you.” KEN JACOBS
