Full Project Description:
Developing a physical co-working space to capture the way working life is changing for many people as technology enables different and more digitally mediated ways for communication, sharing, and collaboration.
We propose to design a digitallly augmented installation that reveals how the spaces we inhabit, reflect patterns of personal online behaviour and how they relate to physical and virtual environments. The boundaries between life in the home and life in the workplace have become blurred.
By designing and making an environment that provokes conscious reflective engagement we hope to elicit an understanding of how digital technologies have brought about a form of working life characterised by hybridisation. This hybridisation of work space and home space demands equivalently hybrid objects and environments to capture its possibilities.
