Factory 19 by Dennis Glover
Hobart, 2022: a city with a declining population, in the grip of a dark recession. One day the city’s residents are awoken by a high-pitched sound no one has heard for two generations: a factory whistle. The Gallery of Future Art’s owner, world-famous billionaire Dundas Faussett, is creating his most ambitious installation yet. He’s going to defeat technology’s dominance over our lives by establishing a new Year Zero: 1948.
