“Anti-Work” Tunnel within the Productive Society

I was initially intrigued by the versatility of the pool grounds and public spaces from the Highbridge Pool. When water was removed from the pool, the new area encouraged and introduced new forms of leisure, such as shuffleboard, into the regulated space. What would it mean to conceptualize unproductivity in leisure? Is it inherently disrupting a social system? Leisure became a form of rebellion against work, which I have constituted as a confined space that orders and demands how people should live. The resulting intervention is an elevated and parasitic structure that runs through current institutions of labor along W157th to W170th Street Broadway that represent the productive worker. It is a disruption in existing forms of labor and specifically, on blue collar and working-class systems. This intervention questions what it means to be unproductive and how the rebellion of productivity, as an institution, can be complex and difficult to resist. The intervention brings people of interest, workers, to the forefront of the institution and provides the public with a physical passageway for collective action and visibility within private spaces. It establishes voids into existing buildings as a way of forcing unproductivity into the common practices of labor and work.
