An artistic approach to the Internet of Things (IoT)
CADA will be leading a day-long workshop at the Folkestone Fringe, part of the Folkestone Triennial 2014.
The workshop explores a world where human and nonhuman entities have an equal claim to existence. It will introduce and actively examine the class of technologies described as the Internet of Things (IoT) and explore its problematic implications for the notions of human agency and social identity.
Equally seeing it as an opportunity to provoke new ideas and ludic experimentation, CADA will ask participants to imagine a world seen from an object's perspective. Using a set of exploratory questions and practical exercises, people will enter the logic of such a projection from the inside out.
What would it be like to see the world from an object's point of view? How would such a 'thing', a computational object, sense and interpret human action? How much of our autonomy are we prepared to share with such objects?
CADA (Jared Hawkey / Sofia Oliveira) is a Lisbon-based art group that collaborates to make mobile software.
