According to Pun Ngai, a sociologist who is specifically researched in Foxconn’s labour condition, described in her research that the dormitory is an extension of assembly line,to maximize worker’s efficiency under production. The bed is directly link to one’s mental health, yet for Chinese rural migrant worker, the bed is another home for a long period of time, the home should be cared. Pay attention back to bed, slowly construct it using a felting needle, as holding delicate screw driver for the given duty. Take the autonomy back, exchange the hours to work for capitalism into working for true living essential- sleep, as a way to protest.
