Why is it so hard to find a job? - Construction Worker

Université de Nanterre, Paris, France

I've just got back from Paris where I was helping to promote ReAct Paris, a conference organised by the European Parliament to tackle the problems of unemployment in Europe, particularly youth unemployment, which in some parts of Europe stand close to a miserable 30%. 

I was leaving miniature workers hidden around the streets of Paris and asking the question "Why is it so hard to find a job?"

The following installations were all shot in Paris for the event. 

Find out more about the conference at and join in the debate through the live stream on 15th October at

I just don't see connection between "why is it so hard to find job?" and your these nice little installations. It seems this "job" series lacks something compare to other your works like war children etc.
Are you aiming to achieve to just make people to say your work is so cute, very skillful, nice..?

This is only because construction jobs are seasonal jobs and it is hard to find the next job after finishing the earlier job.

i really love your work. i like it how you take picture to the small pieces and zoom out to the environment. the way of your presentation do not only leave me a space to think about how the work is related to the topic, but also made me think the serious of the problem you mentioned.

anyways, i have a question. so what do the mini figures made? plastic? sponge?
