Labour, Interaction and Artistic Object [2013]

Value Generator is an interactive installation developed by martinez-zea that creates an aparatus for generating value by transforming the time spend by the spectators interacting with the machine. The study of this artwork allows to characterize the concepts of labor, interaction and artistic object in the framework of the contemporary media art. The research was developed by reading authors that take the value-labor theory from Marx to re-contextualize it in the posfordism productive system.

Key words: Immaterial Labour, Media Art, Artistic Object, Interactivity, Value Generator
