Time & Motion: Redefining Working Life exhibition

Words by 

An exhibition tracking the evolution of working culture has opened at FACT (Foundation for Art and Creative Technology) in Liverpool. Time & Motion: Redefining Working Life has been developed by the Royal College of Art (RCA) Creative Exchange Hub, based on the scientific method coined by Frederick Taylor, used to analyse the efficiency of working methods.

The show features artworks, research projects, archival materials and installations to examine how our patterns of day-to-day working life have changed, from clocking in at the factory gates to logging in from our local entrepreneurial networking space, and assesses work/life balance and the shifting focus of industry.

It is the result of a major research and innovation programme by the RCA and features artists Revital Cohen and Tuur Van Balen, Harun Farocki, Oliver Walker, Blake Fall-Conroy, Sam Meech, Molleindustria, Jeff Crouse and Stephanie Rothernberg, Andrew Norman Wilson and The Creative Exchange.

To run alongside the exhibition, FACT also commissioned the RCA to develop a new online game that invites people to test their understanding of their own working life, which you can play here.

The free exhibition runs from 12 December – 9 March at FACT, 88 Wood Street, Liverpool, L1 4DQ.
