AV performance presented live at LPM - Eindhoven, 2014. I presented the narrative piece titled "Flexible, Responsible & Multi-task". It's a work based on the concept of Liquid Modernity of Zygmunt Bauman and focus on the world of Work and the soundtrack was Diarmo playing live his latest tracks. Liquidity is a metaphor describing the postmodernity which is synonym of change, liberalization of the markets, deregulation, etc… Solids retain their shape and last in time meanwhile liquids are shapeless and transform constantly. In a liquid society, unpredictable and constantly changing, the work has become uncertain, short-term and unreliable. We have to be flexible, individualistic and insensitive to change jobs, teams, projects without being too affected. In a pragmatic and cold professional world, where everything is measured in cost and benefit, we are used and thrown away as spare parts. We have no more trust, loyalty and commitment to the employers. Fragmented lives, fear, no long-term plans, we have no perspective in the future and we have lost ties with the community, traditions and solidarity.
