"Read on for Curtis’ views on the storytelling power of physical artefacts, the language gaps that divide workers and their bosses, the potential symbiosis between personal and corporate purpose, as well as what “more human” should mean at work and who Curtis is looking to document next…"
Curtis has been working on this talk for a long time. It really encapsulates why he set up Fieldwork, and the power that gathering and sharing stories about humans at work can have.
5 people sit on a bench at Universal Studio's in Florida. The first lady looks into the distance, or maybe she is looking at a friend in the long queue opposite, hoping the wait won't be too long. The second lady stares at the park map, working out where to go next. The man next to her rubs his eyes, maybe in tiredness after days wandering around theme parks full to the brim with Thanksgiving visitors. The second man sits, staring into space, hands together, fingers interwoven, maybe with stress and anxiety. The last lady covers part of her face with her hand and crosses her legs away from the man next to her.
A group of people sit on the floor at an exhibition called "Brains: The mind as matter" at the Wellcome Trust. They stare at an unseen television screen showing a surgical procedure on a patients brain.
On a damp, hot bank holiday weekend at the Black Lion Pub in Brighton, DJ Mac McRaw is playing records to the crowd at a Vinyl Veterans all-dayer. A makeshift rain cover has been erected so that the party can continue through the rain.
Two men are working in a tannery in the heart of Marrakech, Morocco. One of them is removing animal skins from lime baths. The smell of decaying flesh and animal urine is in the air.
A man and women stand in front of an archway made of multicoloured straws. The woman has her arm in a sling, the man carries a bag and they look like they might be lost.
The sun is setting on Brighton beach, and hundreds of people have gathered to watch a piece of art unfold before them. A man stands guard, his fluorescent arm band signalling his authority. His job is to stop people walking up the section of beach that isn't roped off. People seem confused as to why they haven't just roped off this section too.
It's early in the morning at Coffee @33 on Trafalgar Street in Brighton. Taras, the owner of this coffee shop is preparing for a busy day. Wearing protective gloves, he aligns the chocolate tart with absolute precision, concentration etched on his face.
The Brighouse Rest Centre is housed on the site of the old Brighouse Echo Newspaper. At this moment in time, D-Day celebrations are taking place, and it's being used as a jumble sale location. Two ladies flick through clothes on a hanging rail whilst a lady in an apron stands by.
