One of four short video works commissioned by the Royal College of Art and FACT (Foundation for Art & Creative Technology) Liverpool as part of the AHRC funded 'Creative Exchange' project. The videos form part of the Hybrid Lives Co-Working space, designed specifically for the FACT 2013-14 major exhibition 'Time & Motion: Redefining Working Life'. A key concept behind both the designed space and the videos is that of complexity and hybridity in contemporary work/life practices, and a move away from the strict historical divisions of home and work. This is symbolised in the video through the use of a domestic gingham table-cloth, which darts and weaves between images of work and home, becoming increasingly grid like: the weave of the cloth becomes the weave of the web.
The video is accompanied by a site-specific video at FACT that superimposes a live feed of the co-working space over historical archive footage of working lives. There is an accompanying publication: liverpooluniversitypress.co.uk/index.php?option=com_wrapper&view=wrapper&Itemid=11&AS1=Time+and+Motion
