A Day in the Life of a Networked Designer’s Smart Things or A Day in a Designer’s Networked Smart Things, 2030

This 3-meter (10 ft.) long diagrammatic narrative, created with Irene Pereya and others, is a story in the form of a large data readout from a futuristic data gathering system. Media A was commissioned to create the project by the Singapore International Design Festival. It has also been shown in London, New York, Antwerp (Belgium) and Kielce (Poland).

 

The diagram portrays a day in a fictional designer’s life during the year 2030 as she interacts with and is guided by her smart things—objects, systems, and environments with embedded intelligence. It suggests a society in which smart things have civic and commercial agency.

 

See science fiction writer Bruce Sterling’s post about the project in his Beyond the Beyond blog for Wired.com here.
