Workers Leaving the Googleplex

Workers Leaving the Googleplex investigates a top secret, marginalized class of workers at Google's international corporate headquarters in Silicon Valley. The video documents the yellow badge-wearing ScanOps Google Books workers, while simultaneously chronicling the complex events surrounding my own dismissal from the company. The reference to the Lumière Brother's 1895 film Workers Leaving the Factory situates the video within motion picture history, suggesting transformations and continuities in arrangements of labour, capital, media, and information.
