About this item
Through the screen of his computer, a man watches a squirrel running about in a forest. For the better half of his life he has been drifting from job to job, diligently designing work-automating systems, and being rendered redundant by those systems. As he observes the squirrel, we observe him; and as he imagines the squirrel's world, we imagine his. The Squirrel Awakes is a quiet meditation on 21st century life and a compelling look at the direction society is heading.
