The Curious Home at Science Oxford

Research output: Non-textual formExhibition


From 21st January - 29th February 2008 at Science Oxford, the Interaction Research Studio presents The Curious Home, an exhibition of electronic furniture that demonstrates a radical vision of home technology. Working with London households, the team has designed pieces that electronically highlight aspects of the local environment, transforming information to encourage exploration, interpretation and wonder. The designs themselves are shown alongside documentary films that capture how Londoners lived with the furniture in their homes.

On show will be several pieces, including:
> The Local Barometer – small devices that display text and images from local classifieds as if blown through the home.
> The Drift Table – a table that drifts over the landscape giving aerial views of Britain.
