Convenience with a not-so hidden cost.

Open the app. Add to cart. Go to check out. There’s a knock at your door. Your purchase has arrived.

Within the union stronghold of Trades Hall, experimental art company APHIDS and real on-demand “gig economy” workers come together in a ritual performance unboxing personal and global experiences of work. Objects are delivered, unwrapped and accumulated. An electric bike weaves around obstacles and entry points. The speed of work builds to walk-run pace as a shift like no other unfolds.

EASY RIDERS examines how our demand for convenience is shaping our bodies, behaviour and perception of time; and jeopardising hard-won workers’ rights including the eight-hour workday. The future of work is already here.

Gig workers of the world, unite!
