Descrizione: The workers are absorbed by the work of the assembly line. Their actions are repetitive, everyone has their own task, but together they perform a single action. The factory, however, produces nothing. At the end of the assembly line the seeds extracted from the watermelons are counted with a rhyme, born between 1475 and 1695 in Great Britain, before the industrial revolution, when the categorization of labor and social status in early capitalism began to be defined. This rhyme was part of a game for children, who counted seeds, stones, buttons until the last one, in order to guess their future job. The game divided into its phases and performed as work on the assembly line is about the idea of work itself. Workers act as parts of a mechanism constantly moving and producing nothing, as in a suspended time.
