At a time of structural changes in the labour market, growing youth unemployment and sharp transitions in business practice to address global recession, the subject of rethinking working life is both relevant and timely. Time & Motion re-examines the relevance of our traditional notions of the eight-hour day, in particular the effects of digital technology on patterns of working life and on digital public space. Amid the new realities of a globalised experience economy and a working environment that is increasingly distributed, virtualised and digital, our definitions of production and consumption, work and recreation are becoming increasingly blurred. This book seeks to redefine our understanding of working life by documenting and describing contemporary artworks commissioned on this theme, and to provide some theoretical building blocks with essays by key thinkers in the field. Emerging from a collaboration between the Royal College of Art's Creative Exchange (CX) Hub and FACT (Foundation for Art and Creative Technology),Time & Motion will be required reading for anyone interested in the ways in which the digital revolution has altered the fabric of society.
