RWBA has been on extended vacation, contemplating the working holiday and trying to get a handle on new tablet devices. When being busy is an unquestioned value, the portable office can be a kind of luxury, given as a gift – an initiation into the world where you no longer have an excuse for not answering an e-mail within ten minutes, not retweeting, not capturing your every move. Recent RWBA moves have been slow.
Thinking about my imminent return to London, I am becoming acutely aware that productivity has a territory, a geography. I am preparing myself, projecting my productive self, into the sphere of work, in preparation for transformation. Nathan Budzinski sent me this mix on the theme of labour and I have been listening to it while catching up on e-mails and trying to imagine the place in my mind I will need to be pacing around for the next few days, re-entering the work stream.
