Snap Out of It: Subversion of working time to create moments of reflection
My project outcome took the form of a suite or ‘kit’ of artefacts used in psychedelic microdosing to subvert working time. This theme arose through looking at working time and our time’s value in a capitalist society. The concept of microdosing as a medium for this subversion was influenced through my exploration of its rising popularity in the workplace and beyond. The microdosing element makes a point by affording the user reflection on their place within such a culture whilst perversely, increasing their productivity. The project uses the brand identity of “High Time” as a means of furthering its separation from the status quo and a tool in provoking thought. I aimed to take a satirical and critical look at traditional working culture and where this is going in the future.
