Workers (2005, photo projection, voice-over)

In a spacious darkened room, four series of images are projected on the wall, fading and appearing in synchronization. These series are unbiased photo documentaries of a day's work of four workers from different industries.
They are a funeral furnace operator, a demolition worker, an abortion doctor, and a cattle slaughterer. All of them are in charge of one or another legal form of annihilation during peacetime. The projections are accompanied by the heroic narration of their voice over.
