Without Laughter is an installation and performance based on the continual renewal of symbols and methods of industry and on the call to work. Drawing its title for the autobiographical novel Not Without Laughter by Langston Hughes that speaks of the passage from the destitute of rural Kansas with its blues soundtrack and familial laughter to the cold Chicago streets and its industrial call, the work pulls from field hollers, steam whistles, the wrecking industry of Gambettola and the history of the ex cement factory, Fabbrica. The work was installed at Fabbrica in Gambettola(FC) Italy 2012.
