I WOULD PREFER NOT TO 2017

This work questions the motivations behind the technologic utopianism of our society, consequence of a relentless, self-sufficient informational capitalism. On display we can see the famous line from Bartleby, the scrivener written by Herman Melville with which the main character refueses to accomplish the tasks demanded by its employer. However, as soon as we interact with the artwork, the line blurs and gets distorted, making it hard to read. Once some time of inactivity has passed, the line appears again without distortion. It's an interactive piece that rewards not interacting with it.
