84 Hours reflects on the working life of William Wood, a bookbinder who died in Newgate Prison in 1788, having served half of a two year sentence. He had been imprisoned for putting pressure on his master to reduce the working week by one hour; from 84 hours to 83 hours.

A single book was bound from 6am until 8pm for 6 days, recreating William’s working week. It was physically and mentally extremely demanding. Although I chose to undertake this challenging week, people across the globe are still forced to endure these extreme working hours throughout their working lives.
