Leisure. My con/temporary status symbols

POSTED BY: Guido Segni | Thu Dec 20th, 2012 8:23 p.m.

In the Internet era the separation between labour and spare time (leisure) has become subtle as never before.

Chat statuses are one of the most indicative representation of this con-temporary condition: available, busy, away or offline.

"Leisure" is an ongoing time-based portrait of me, myself and the internet from the point of view of my temporary chat status symbols.

Once per hour, 24/7, a script posts archives and over-exhibits my intimate Google Talk status through the website forming an abstract and coloured texture from which users can date back any moments of my daily life.
