“The Ride” by Rodolphe Guenode
I am severely obsessed with Rod Guen’s work. Severely .
This machine allows anyone to work for minimum wage for as long as they like. Turning the crank on the side releases one penny every 4.97 seconds, for a total of $7.25 per hour. This corresponds to minimum wage for a person in New York. This piece is brilliant on multiple levels, particularly as social commentary. Without a doubt, most people who started operating the machine for fun would quickly grow disheartened and stop when realizing just how little they’re earning by turning this mindless crank. A person would then conceivably realize that this is what nearly two million people in the United States do every day…at much harder jobs than turning a crank. This turns the piece into a simple, yet effective argument for raising the minimum wage.
this is Te’DeVan.
i met this gentleman today while exploring downtown for a quick minute. he enjoys meditating immensely and is raising money to make his way to india. and i was pleasantly surprised at how well he can and will deliver the freestyle rap he advertises.
