As the artist participated in an artistic project hosted by Thailand’s major silk manufacturer, he found his mother’s image who worked as a textile worker for thirty years from the young female workers pouring out from the Thailand’s textile factory. The video presents a visual juxtaposition of the recollection of his mother’s life and the interviews of the Thailand textile workers, as well as clips of textile manufacturing machines, while the installation presents the jacquard fabric and colored threads produced in the silk manufacturer. Here, the artist reveals the relationship between an individual’s life and an economic system, and the social system and environment imposed on the rhythm of an individual’s labor.
