interventions + actions
The exhibition criticizes the current conformation of society dictated by the immediacy system. Through actions, criticism is put into practice to encourage public participation in reducing everyday social disparities. With the gathering of volunteers, carried out in the interventions themselves and through dissemination, the project would occur regularly, always taking into account the case study of the place. The project constitutes a series of interventions that encourage inclusion and empathy as a way to mitigate social segregation and class struggle. We plan, however, to make the interventions become a means of distributing public action together with volunteers, to promote the availability of those who have plenty of free time to those who would like to have more time but cannot.
With the Industrial Revolution and the new socioeconomic parameter, society became a production machine. Time changes to money. Individuals see themselves out of time, are coerced into being productive at all times and taught to reject idleness. We live in an oppressive and exclusive system, in dispute of power, which defines economic, political, social, spatial, gender, race, and class standards. The social logic was shaped from interests and rhythm, where the optimization of time is a priority. The project questions this model of society.
The project proposes a new look at how we use time. Directing the public to critical thinking in relation to the productivist and immediate system imposed on us. It aims to reach all kinds of audiences, who can and cannot, allow themselves to think about how they spend their time - work, health, education, housing, mobility, basic services, treatment and life perspective are factors of inequality - intending an accessible and understandable format , while, it incites judgment to the current social structure.
The system works over time. Time is money. Each class has its relationship with that. In research it can be seen that classes A and B have much more free time than C and D. The former do not know how to manage this time, the others do not have this "luxury". The project intends, based on that, to try to redistribute this time, as a way of trying to reduce social discrepancies.

"It was tiring, I used to drive 3 times, the time, the traffic, the number of people was stressful, but what motivated me was to count on my work to pay the bills."
