LABOUR TALKS asks the public to reflect on the ways that their labour is valued. Make or Break conducts a series of one-on-two interviews, where people are asked to share their views concerning labour and value creation. Each interview is documented with a handwritten set of short notes, first name, age, occupation and a photograph of the person’s hands (labour symbols), slowly building an archive of labour relations.

This project was commissioned as part of the exhibition For Love or Money, curated by Sophia Cai at Town Hall Gallery, Hawthorn, Victoria.
