Waking Up and Realising I'm Part of the System
Inspired by Kasimir Malevich's The Knife Grinder, Waking Up and Realising I'm Part of the System portrays several characters trapped within the cogs, pipes and mechanics of an industrial system. They are integral figures in the framework of their society, indeed society would not function without them but nonetheless they are prisoners, their identity syhphoned off by the fabric of capitalist society.
