WorkStation is a series of three films that explore contemporary architecture, its promise of ease of use, and its homogeneous luxury. The films look at how competing economic worldviews overlap and interact by focusing on people in the workplace who occupy — but don’t inhabit — their space. CLEANER is the second project in a trilogy of experimental art films by Jennifer & Kevin McCoy, about contemporary architecture, class, and economic precarity. In CLEANER our protagonist leverages her maintenance work into entrepreneurship, creating dance out of corporate space. The film underlines the existence of ‘invisible labor’ to investigate how modern architecture reflects the social order.
