.‘Factory of the Sun’ Opening at SJMOA

Donna Haraway’s 1985 piece “A Cyborg Manifesto” inspired a generation of artists and theorists to dissect the relationships between technology, labor, gender and the human body. 30 years later, filmmaker Hito Steyerl titled her video installation after a quote from the text: “machines made of pure sunlight.” 2015’s surreal and expansive Factory of the Sun borrows from video games, viral social media trends and documentary film to tell a visual narrative of workers made to dance in a motion-capture studio to produce artificial sunshine.
