working while Working
working while Working represents a multidisciplinary exploration of the phenomenon of human endeavour. While it is fashionable to discuss such ideas as "the end of work" (douglas coupland, blah blah magazine), and to see much of our occupations as inefficient systems designed to create activities for the masses, soon to be made redundant by technological advances, what I see around me and experience in my own life could not be further from the truth. working while Working is a series of questions and open ended inquiries into most humans main activitie: working. far from an admonishment of work, foremost in this inquiry is the understanding that this activity can just as easily be a life raft against crushing existential forces as it can be a catalyst for them, for some, ones occupation can feel like an obliteration of personal identity, while for others it can provide a label to wear with pride. working while Working presents no answers, only questions, and the making of this work is intimately tied to my own occupational necessities, forming both a system of rebellion against work, and a way to honour the experience of it. A way to turn a daily grind into a graceful dance.
