What does WORK mean to you?  

 

WORK represents reward and failure. The joy of shared accomplishment and a fear of rejection. WORK can give us both an identity and lack of individuality. WORK is struggle. As humans, we have a need, a desire to WORK. It’s how we relate to others. WORK defines who we are, as a culture, a class, our place and our relevance to the world. Through the use of digital media, noise and performance art, The WORK Collective creates immersive environments...layers, feedback, shadows and loops that convey our message of WORK. Like society, our numbers vary and change based on a given project. We possess a broad range of talents, however we often seek the help of others who can help us grow. Aside from our hope to make interesting WORK, we hope to promote community. Inspire neighborhoods to create a sense of pride, teardown barriers, reduce mistrust between distinct cultural groups and to help find common ground. WORK is an assemblage of several parts that create a whole. A shared responsibility. Together, we agree, we disagree, we laugh, we fight. 

We are tolerant and we are restless.

We WORK.
