The video playfully juxtaposes opposing words, commonly used to construct identities. Each word denotes a socially acknowledged marker. The narrative moves along a presumed timeline of life, as if locating an individual as ‘productive’ or ‘non-productive’ – cog in the wheel or a thorn – in an assumed cycle of productivity, leading up to the ‘us’ and ‘them’ paradigm. The sound track uses mundane and commonplace sounds, to support the narrative.
