Excerpt from Overtime, 4 minutes, silent, video, 2004
While the notion of overtime in the work context is generally conceived as additional workload, excess-of-work in this piece is represented as the lethargy the body manifests when overworked. Rather than working and behaving properly, slacking and sleeping are the championed activities of this project. They represent unproductive instances of the working body. These gestures are conflated to ambiguous spatial situations in the physical configuration of the office space; for example, the space underneath the desk or the space in between meeting tables. As a group, these actions propose a flexibilization of an otherwise rigid code of control.
