While everyday objects in our environment, from the living room to the street and even our garments, become increasingly connected, something in their fundamental nature promises to change. A future where waste bins are surveillance objects and lights in airports can track us, or where mail boxes can start a conversations with passers-by, offer all kinds of possibilities to alter our understanding of our inmediate reality.
This session investigates how connected objects can become a sophisticated language for creative exploration beyond the canonical visions of the Internet of Things industry, as designers and artists shape more ambiguous and culturally sophisticated scenarios.
Chaired by Clare Reddington.
