Description

Attention All Users is a dystopian exploration of the future of the commodification of the body. In modern times, we must pay for the right and the ability to use our bodies, whether it relates to disability, medicine, sexwork, or manual labor, and the machine of capitalism threatens to take this reality to horrific extremes. Here, I've imagined the grim possibility of a subscription service to even the most essential body parts, and encourage viewers to reflect on the implications of a system like this in both their everyday lives, and society as a whole.
