[Interactive game cabinet with touch screen and electric wires, 8 videos]
Street Fighters addresses the delicate theme of death at work in Italy, the country with Europe’s highest professional mortality rate. An unfortunate record of more than 1300 victims a year, meaning that 4 or 5 workers die every day, for the greediness of those managers who don’t stick to health and safety regulations. The project consists of a video installation: short videos played by an 80’s game cabinet, from the bottom of which many power cables run across the floor and walls of the space.
The viewer – ironically trapped by the desire of playing – can interact with the video game, and choose which videos and features to watch.
