Through the use of mixed media, Sophie Stewart challenges the acceptance of constraints caused by modern working conditions, and highlights the effects of precarity on the individual. She questions dehumanising aspects of precarious work, by emphasising the mundane, prolonging repetitive routines, and drawing attention to societal labels and expectations.

The aim of her practice is to eradicate feelings of alienation, by ‘re-humanising’ the worker – giving a voice to marginalised people, sharing their stories and experiences, and expressing the toll of emotional labour on an individual’s self-worth.
