In 2009-2010, Skewed Visions presented a series of short online videos meant to be watched at work. Called Cubicle, it was a way for Art to steal back some time from Work. The next series, Cubicle 2: on the internet, nobody knows, began to explore the intersection of the internet and identity in 2010-2011.
Ten years later, so much has changed.
In the midst of a global pandemic, work and the internet have both changed. Also, thanks to the heroic efforts of activists and organizers there is growing attention to racial injustice and white supremacy, and the relations between identity and the internet inhabit a fundamentally changed space.
In the middle of this turbulence, we present Cubicle3: Work. Now.
We have requested short videos inspired by these changes and our new circumstances. We present these here as a marker of that time a very long year ago when the pandemic became a serious reality for many.
