The exploration into a networked nature of domestic spaces.
If buildings are vast networks of material and social elements that come together in time and space, Networked Homes is about how that happens - about social and material relations that produce our common urban landscapes.
For the past year the project team has been building an ultra-precise interactive digital twin model for its new workspace-home, for the first time bringing together a set of exhibition pieces.
How can we, together, own our cities? Where the construction materials are coming from and what is their environmental footprint? How much human labor is needed to make a ‘thing’? Where does the construction waste go? Who ends up using the space and how often? What are the interactions between people and non-human actors within the space? There are many gains in simply making the answers to these questions more tangible.
The richer the model of the project has been becoming, the more space for experiments it is offering. Think Bruno Latour’s model of interplay in actor-network theory, or Keller Easterling’s active forms - ones you can play with. The visitors of the Biennial will become a new element for this assemblage.
