In Waiting Working Hours, the voices of the workers are mixed with digital Google Street View images. Their testimonies, in a multitude of languages, form a constructed dialogue about labour, economics and life. In the immobile world of Google Street View, we are reminded of the standstill that the workers experience when they are waiting for hours. Together with the workers, Waiting Working Hours examines and questions their current situation, their thoughts on labour and their dreams for the future.
