work 1-I Put Here My Lazy Girl This Soft Cushion

work 2- 10 yards of linen

work 1 Feelings unveils her ambitions. Sending emails in bed answering a other by the lake, her laptop make her flexible, she drift freely and productively. nothing is work, everything is work. She works hard in software, but her weave cannot not enter the machine even in measurement of machines.

Her woven A4s represent desires of object without functions.

Like a football shirt without logos or wild horses in the desert.

work 2-Responding to the first chapter of The Capital, written by Karl Marx in 1867. He writes: as the coat and the linen are two qualitatively different use values, so also the two forms labour producing them, tailoring and weaving. In todays post-Fordist drama, her hands that weaves the 10 yards of linen is no longer of economic interest. When she weaves, she is not a worker, that is the whole point in her act of weaving. It is a practice of not working. The weave could be an instrument to dismiss her will to work. Weaving is sometimes a method to say No, thank you, and just don’t do it. She finds that she produces her own incapacity to even try, growing sick and depressed and motionless under all the conditions of all the capitalist yes and she just can’t. Can weaving be mentioned along side demands for basic income? What is a work and how do one work without a market? how does she control her own access when demand fails?
