作品敘述

象徵生產線勞動者的「樂高蜜蜂人」,勤奮工作卻也疲憊不堪,只能待下工後至吃到飽自助式餐廳消費,大肆犒賞自己一番。這弔詭的畫面反映了資本主義社會中的異化現象,勞動者的生產使其自身成了商品後再進入市場自我消費,爾後再回頭投入生產來穩固此自我消費;這般生產與消費的循環使人們逐漸失去自我、認不清自己的真正需求。而吃到飽所衍生的生產過剩及過度消費現象,甚至是加工食品對人類的影響等飲食議題,亦值得觀者細細省思。

The hardworking yet exhausted “Lego Bee Man” symbolizes the laborers of a production line. He rewards himself after work by feasting at all-you-can-eat buffet restaurants. This paradoxical picture reflects a phenomenon of alienation in a capitalist society. Laborers’ production has made themselves become goods that are introduced into the market to be consumed by themselves. Then, these laborers go back to producing so that this self-consumption is stabilized. This cycle of production and consumption is causing people to lose themselves, and without recognizing their real needs. And, the overproduction and excessive consumption derived from all-you-can-eat habits, as well as the impact of processed foods on people’s diets are all topics worthy of careful reflection by viewers.
