The workers’ lift, 2008
Single channel film with sound 6 mins.
This is a Preview of the first 60 seconds of the film.
The workers’ lift explores the hidden space occupied by workers in a large shopping centre in Cologne, Germany.
In this film, workers move between floors unseen by shoppers, using an exclusive private elevator that allows them to step on and step off different levels in the shopping centre. The lift offers a peaceful and quiet mode of transport; a moment of escape for the workers, in a hidden pocket of space away from the hectic noisy shopping environment that awaits them on the other side.
