Receipt for Life

thermal prints

‘Receipt for life’ is a work about my labour. More specifically, ‘Receipt for life' is a confusion of what I want to do and what I do to make money. This work lasted about 3 months. For three months, I had three jobs in parallel an artist's assistant, a studio intern, and a cafe's barista. This work shows how I endured and struggled during that period. I was trying to record 'repeating' on the days I worked. The content of my record can be divided into three categories: photos, notes, and audio files. And I printed them with a receipt printer, the most frequently used machine when working in a cafe.
