A Machine for Living In

This project uses embedded, situated computing to study the home as a site of intimate life. After constructing and inhabiting a functional smart home system, resulting data drives a generative art installation. The result is a complex, machine-mediated portrait of the everyday. Here, two visual streams—overhead surveillance footage accumulating occupancy behavior, and generative video imagining an Algorithmic Dream Home—explore the role of AI in domestic space and the overview provided by ML systems.
