PROGRAM L.O.S.T. [LOSING ONE’S SELF TEMPORARILY]

Produced by Jennifer Cheng Commissioned by The Cheng Family Foundation Throughout the course of our lives, we lose ourselves; mentally, physically and emotionally. When we experience this loss, though temporary, we also experience our capacity to recognize and rise to the challenge of adapting and reshaping who we are in every moment. The constant, teetering balance between vulnerability and control is the most natural process of the human experience and is the inspirational center for the collection L.O.S.T. An exploration of what both divides and unites, this series is an abstract study of our transient reality as we traverse through our daily lives and our daily work.

PART 1: “CUBICLE” (2015)

Set in an abstract corporate America, “Cubicle” explores the human condition under cramped control and a monotonous reality, exposing an underlying counterbalance between freedom and anarchy in the workplace. Anonymity and confinement set the pace in this corporate sea of grey as we witness a multitude of shifting landscapes as abstract representations of a familiar work environment. Boxing in both their

sanity and distinctiveness, we witness the struggle to maintain a sense of individuality on the corporate climb as the performers labor against a homogenized work mentality, finding solidarity only within themselves and each other.
