installation : FAT by beyza dilem, carlotta aoun & wonjik yang

FAT is an installation that visualizes the human in its most abstracted form (fat) within the virtual factory of hidden human labor of Amazon’s Mechanical Turk. Using a data set from NYU about the MTurk workers, we were able to calculate the average amount of time spent to complete one task. This time was then converted into calories using a daily calorie intake of 2000 per day, which was then converted to grams of fat.The project aims to materialize intake of 2000 per day, which was then converted to grams of fat. The project aims to materialize the remote nature of the work using coconut oil for its versatility between liquid and solid.
