Leisure. My con/temporary status symbols

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 www.temporarystatussymbols.com website forming an abstract and coloured texture from which users can date back any moments of my daily life.
