Xerox's Paradox - John Butler
A series of posters for public space by Glasgow based artist and animator, John Butler. Xeroxs Paradox: The more we automate, the harder we will work. XP is a collection of utility clothing designs for the age of symbolic labour. In an environment of total productivity, humans will only have to work harder in order to justify their continued existence. This New Labour will serve a moral, rather than productive purpose, absorbing and dissipating excess human energy. Xeroxs Paradox is technologys inverse effect. Xeroxs fear of the paperless office led to the GUI, which created an explosion in the production of printed matter. This exhibition is part of NEoN Digital Arts Festival.
