Whose Utopia

Filmed over the course of six months, Cao Fei’s Whose Utopia? is a twenty minute video made at the OSRAM China Lighting Ltd. in China’s Pearl River Delta. The film is intended to be viewed as part of a larger installation called Utopia Factory, which contains separate spaces that represent different aspects of everyday life at the factory: from the entrance to the production line, displaying a variety of light bulbs to the dormitory rooms with bunk beds and scarce personal belongings. Presented media including Whose Utopia? consists of Sound Factory, Interview with Employee, Questionnaire, and the newspaper Utopia Daily.
