Resistance of 24/7 Productivity is a series of experiments on the experience and perception of intangible time. Opposed to the characteristics of clock time such as uniformity, order, repetition that imposed by our current society, Resistance of 24/7 Productivity aims to help the general public acknowledge a fundamental need for slowness and mindfulness and find their own way of measuring time in daily life. Resistance of 24/7 Productivity takes three different approaches to help people better understand time. It first presents a poetic way of visualizing the passage of time to weaken the excessive exposure of time information in our daily life. Then it offers audiences an alternative logic for tracking self-time to better settle into the present moment. And finally, it invites audiences to step out of the mechanized time and regain the control of their time.
