While overtime is normally conceived as additional workload, ‘excess of work’ is in this piece represented as the excess the body manifests when overworked. Slacking and sleeping, rather than performing and behaving properly, are the championed activities here; they represent unproductive instances of the working body. This piece conflates the situations described above to ambiguous spatial situations in the physical configuration of the office space; for example, the space underneath the desk, the space in between meeting tables, etc. While not claiming a state of complete freedom, the situations depicted in this piece propose a flexibilization of an otherwise rigid code of control.
