ElectroClass is a film about the imaginary of labour made by a regional television broadcasting channel in Spain starting from the 80s. Taking the archives of ETB (Basque Country broadcasting channel) as source material and the city of Bilbao as a specific case study, ElectroClass reflects upon the dissolution of the traditional concept of the working class, the changes in our working conditions from industrial capitalism to cognitive capitalism,the expansion of the tertiary sector and the radical transformation of the 'polis' city into the 'Bilbao brand'.

A project in collaboration with SCREEN Festival 2012.

While there are ideas about psychological and emotional developmental processes held within the sculptures I make, the things themselves are actual physical explorations into thinking, feeling, communicating and relating.
