Sisyphus Happy

single-channel video + installation – 2020

The film that takes Camus’ philosophical essay, “The Myth of Sisyphus,” as a conceptual framework to reflect on the artist’s condition, focusing its narrative on a factory robot, a tool for automated labor that epitomizes capitalism, and is often perceived as an anthropomorphization of technology. In this case, the robot is programmed to depict images using a burin as a drawing tool and car parts as canvases; this conflation of a high precision tool and an act of vandalism to explore the idea of purpose in purposelessness challenges the reasoning behind profitability in efficacy.
