If I Worked for 493 Years
“If I Worked for 493 Years" is an ongoing performance art video documenting every day at work as well as the aging process through the digital eyes of my computer. It juxtaposes a personal narrative against economic research and statistics. I began this piece in 2006 as a response to US economic policies that were heavily weighted against working class and lower-middle class families. The policies continue to favor large corporations over working class families, especially women. Health care in particular has become an unaffordable luxury for many working women and their families.

This project is ongoing, I am interested in connecting with other women in different countries who also might be documenting their work on an ongoing basis.

Thanks Lisa, I started blogging about the downs and the not so nice treated such as talk down to I experience at my job. Then I stopped because its the only one I have and it bearly pays the bill. I do not want to get fire because my writing might get to the attention of my employers.
