A temp worker makes a complaint to the human resources department at the large company to which they have been dispatched. A moving image work that makes us think about social issues such as irregular employment, the individual and large companies, and Koreans living in Japan in regard to the “organization people” who immediately apologize mechanically and whose thoughts themselves have become automatic like weak A.I. In a present when superficial knowledge can be obtained on the Internet, without being ignorant we must resist the preconceptions we believe because they are convenient for us. A moving image social experiment that asks how we can face social issues as individuals in circumstances in which it is difficult to get people to be aware of what these issues are before talking about them. (H.S.)

A female temp worker complains to a large company about the leaking of personal information. The stone slung by this modern-day David facing the Goliath of a major company is flung back as a mechanical apology. With direction that rejects generalizations about vulnerable people and emotional involvement, what is being pushed is more the audience than the characters who appear. It is a work that questions the conditions for being a human being in today’s difficult circumstances that deprive us of our creativity. (M.Y.)
