WORKSHOP FOR THE NEW WORLD
Denis produced the two main video installations of the exhibition. The first had a documentary approach and was developed as a video diptych. The short documentary 'What is Work?' explore the Atmospheres of Labours. It was displayed in the first room and matched the contraposition between the New Romantic Field and the theme of Robots and Automatization.

THE DEFINITION OF WORK
Work is the application of desirable changes in the social and natural environment through human activity.
Work can be both physical and intellectual. We only tend to speak about labour in connection to the economy.
ASSUMPTION OF WORK
By working, we affect our environment. The kind of work we do, determines our social environment and our social status. Why we work, determines how we give meaning to our personal life.
How we work, determines the sustainability and viability of the natural environment. The key to the inclusive and sustainable world lies in the future of work.

Denis produced a series of scripted interviews filmed in the studio in vertical 9 x 16 format for the central video installation called' Looking Back'. The monologues were scripted by Studio Monnik; the actors tell stories about their past and present from the future.
