Single-channel video

Disguise is based on a Lacanian approach to the deconstruction of identity and, at the same time, triggers a process to awaken the awareness of the individual within the community. The masks, as exact duplicates of the employees' faces, dramatize their emotions to the point of extreme ostentation. On the other hand, the choreography in slow motion of the mechanical movements that they perform on the assembly line, that we see in the video, reveals another aspect of the work. What is more real, the role they take on or their identities? What reaction could this video provoke in the workers involved when they watch their own performances? Nothing is certain during production and all predictions can turn into new possibilities.
