Curated by Aily Nash and Andrew Norman Wilson

Considering the various modes of examining new forms of labor, consumption-as-production, and the aesthetics and visual language of capitalistic globalized "lifestyle," artists´ moving image and media work recapitulate corporate imagery and language as both a critique and recognition of the omnipotence of these systems. From videos that present the agency of objects in relation to consumers, to the consideration of the space of labor through interventions into sites of emergent industries and globalized consumption, performative and farcical rhetoric, exaggerated uses of prosumer editing and motion graphics tools, and reverent appropriations of advertising imagery—these makers explicitly engage dream factory capitalism. The title, borrowed from The Otolith Group, invokes the cyclical and growing confluence between labor, consumption, and that which propels them.
