Drawing time and attention

Zoom Room 1B

In this workshop we will break out of the prison of the attention economy, go beyond criticism and set out to create an alternative. To do this we need to challenge the metrics of time spent that got us into this mess and explore drawing as a method to visualise attention. I will introduce the visual language I developed to note how people attend to or keep away from distractions. Visualising our attention provides a richer understanding of our attentional capacities than time spent. It’s also a fun drawing opportunity for all skill levels. Takeaways: - Our attentional capacities are not linear - certain activities increase, others decrease our mental energy - Moving away from paying attention with seconds or minutes to attending breaks away from the power dynamic of the attention economy and opens up new possibilities for our digital landscape
