Be Your Own Boss!


Kiah Reading’s BE YOUR OWN BOSS observes the rituals of corporate culture within the dialectical space of Boggo Road Gaol’s Number 2 Division.

“There are sometimes soundtracks to the office. There are the phones that ring. And the mobile phones that ring. There is the dialogue spoken between salesperson and client through these phones. There are the sounds of txts/emails being received and the sound of digital calendars assisting our days. There are the conversations between people and then whispers between closer people. There is the the bell that is rung upon the making of money. There is the door that slams when emptying your body.”
