REPRESSION is revealed as lying under the façade of a neutral and anonymous workspace in ‘Mountain […]’. As the adjustable-height office table is lowered, contour lines spring up from the surface and its various strata are revealed. The ‘mountain’ consists of layer upon layer of office spaces, from lofty boardroom to cavelike telesales cabin. The director’s concealed control centre hangs ominously at the mountain’s core, holding the structure in check with its eyeless gaze.

‘Mountain […]’ delves into a repressed emotional landscape whose hidden heights and unplumbed depths often exist within so-called ‘flat’ office structures, but which nonetheless go undiscussed in company board rooms and unrecorded in corporate workflow charts and management diagrams.
