We put aside our phones for a while with a feeling that we can break away from notifications and focus on work or relax. And should our relaxation be replaced by a series of applications allowing us to work non-stop for several dozen hours, will new forms of recreation emerge? In recent years, many companies have implemented solutions to improve the balance between economically determined activity and private life, and made attempts to minimize side effects such as overworking and burnout. One of these ideas is remote work and limiting the number of hours spent at the office or even banning checking one’s e-mail outside office hours. All the same the string of notifications displayed by the portable devices we use provokes us to follow up unfinished assignments after leaving our offices. Network and app access remove the necessity of physical contact with others but also generate new patterns of behaviour and habits, which result in being constantly on standby. Technology helps us delegate our actions to devices but at the same time makes us use them more often and keep them close to our bodies much longer than before.
All the Time at Work is a series of projects and texts discussing the aspects of flexibilising production and prolonged activity in the era of excess generated by a series of notifications which appear on the screens of devices which accompany us on a daily basis.
The exhibition is accompanied by a publication of texts by Sabrina Chou and Kym Ward, among others.
