This project uses newly available computational and sensing tools to study the home as a site of intimate life. I apply Swiss architect Le Corbusier’s framing of the home as “a machine for living” to interpret the promises of contemporary smart home technologies. Machine observers monitor inhabitants; wireless sensors track concrete physical interactions: doors opening, cups and bowls in use, showers taken. Through sensor fusion and machine learning the house becomes an observing instrument. The product is a multilayered, interactive digital media installation representing the home as a complex space of language, image, narrative, and bodily habit. I contrast utopian illusions of beautiful, frictionless utility with artistic strategies that generate personal insight into the messy, material realities of the everyday.
