24/7 On Call Time Tellers

Who owns the time?What determines the ownership of time?



996 system was a controversial topic and being hugely protested earlier this year, many companies in China tend to adopt this working hour system of 9 am to 9 pm of work, 6 days a week. Many public figures, company owners accuse young people of being slack not committing to the hard-working spirit. I am accusing this issue by making a group of virtual avatars casually walking and relaxing around until someone picking up a phone to ask them what time it is, they will run into the middle of the field in a hurry and form the current time using their bodies, after this intense performance, they went back to life. This installation asks the question of who owns the time and what determines the ownership of time?
