Procrastination Guerrilla is aimed to provide a new discussion field against traditional discourse on procrastination and provoke the public to speak out.  In the context of modern capital society, procrastination is regarded as a negative behavior or even as a disease, because it is contrary to precise working hours, and people try to cancel it and become a hard-working and efficient machine. However, can we really become an accurate machine? Therefore, this work is a series of practices and probes to try to maintain a new narrative to normalize the term procrastination.

 

A DISCUSSION FIELD 
I built a website to let people share what they did when they were procrastinating or lazy to arouse people’s new imagination of daily life aside from work.


A MIND GUERRILLA
However, it is not enough to provide everyone with a space for discussion. The new narrative will be stifled as we return to our work and public media.
As a designer, I should use more methods to arouse people’s imagination of new narritive continuously.
So, they should be instant and flexible to face the complex discourse field.
So, I call these practices for maintaining new discussions as guerrilla.


Practice: Mapping the yelling

Practice: Receipt of Attention Bank

Practice: Cut-up & Knitting


Practice: Annoying Devourer

Practice: Repetitive Ditty

And so on...
This is a endless mind war to struggle in the mainstream discourse.
