In the Colonies of Benevolence labour was respected for its numerous ways it benefitted the vagrants. Its physicality for instance helped the individuals to develop an ethical sense, grow and build their identity. Nowadays, economists and futurologists are claiming that we’re entering a Post-Labour Era in which robots will take over all strenuous jobs, called «Bullshit Jobs», and leave us with emotionally demanding professions. This idea of the new Industrial Revolution sends future workers on the pursuit of what makes us human in comparison with machines in order to save our careers. Louise wants to merge the traditional idea that repetitive, laborious work can be precious in the creation of our «being», and our need to develop human skills. Her project is a research on tools that could be used to enhance our empathy and sensitivity in the work field. This «blueprint» invites us to join in with our own ideas and opinions.
What skills will be required by the future workforces? Louise has been researching on the POST-LABOR era theory, translating it into tools to approach schooling for our future jobs in a more empathetic way.
