Lip Print Labour > Work Week (19, 999 kisses)

Performance/installation, 2007

In Work Week, a 5 channel video displays surveillance of a woman working at a desk in what is assumed to be an office environment. She repeatedly applies red lipstick, kissing page after page of white 8.5 in x 11 in paper, filling thousands of pages with red lipstick.

A woman sits in the corner of a room, continuously shredding each page of lip prints. The pile of shredded paper grows larger in the centre of the room referencing the seemingly endless cycles of bureaucracy in administrative labour.
