Summary
Digital technologies are radically disrupting our working world. During the Industrial Revolution, workers fought for the right to a work-life balance in which they could perform their eight hours of labour and then leave the factory gates. Today's information worker labours within a 'facory' whose gates never close and work is continuously, tantalisingly close to hand. Founder of the eight-hour movement in the U.K., Robert Owen, coined the famous idiom 'Eight hours labour, eight hours recreation, eight hours rest' in 1817. Nearly two centuries later, we have entered a restless, globalised, dislocated working era, as the traditional model of the working day fast recedes from view. 'Time & Motion : Redefining Working Life' presents a unique collection of essays, artworks and experimental design research projects which seek to critique this changing paradigm. Presented in three sections - Labour, Representation and Space - this book explores the cultural, artistic, economic and technological strands that make up our woring world, and upon which contemporary artists and designers feel compelled to comment. -- Publisher's description
