Spare Time

Spare Time is a privileged space, a constructed, game-like park where the endless possibilities can lead to a feeling of insecurity and imprisonment. Is the way we spend our free time really free?
The scene depicts a sort of ‘Minecraft’ world. An ultimate, virtual space, in which everything seems possible. This aspect of endless possibilities is linked to the typical neoliberal idea that we can realise our dreams just as long as  we work hard and all the assets are in the right place.
