New American Sweatshop

Thu Apr 03, 2014 18:00 - Sun Apr 27, 2014

Brooklyn, New York
United States of America

Imagine a future where the American dollar is worthless. To re-build the economy, citizens must use the only resource available: decades of post-consumer waste. With no way to afford expensive international electronics, they sift through products that have been subject to planned obsolescence for the possibility of working parts. The goal is to build a new communications infrastructure that is community-controlled and far from the prying eyes of any government.

The New American Sweatshop manifests itself as an installation that models a functioning manufacturing plant. It relies on intern labor to hand-build semi-functioning prototypes of what our technology could look like in the future. All supplies, furniture and uniforms are created from local salvaged goods.
