The idea of smart home, where one can adjust his or her dwelling with an instant voice commend or with a press of a button, sounded so very promising. And with the booming of domestic technologies, the idea has become an easily achievable reality with Internet of Things: Amazon echo, Philips Hue, Google Home, Samsung Smart Fridge, etc. Yet one’s home used to be a safe harbor, a place of thorough familiarity and comfort. Today a large percentage of our home appliances are like enigma machines. Autonomously, they light up, beep and constantly they track the waves in the air, attempting to pinpoint a length and frequency that resemble “Siri/Alexa/Google/Turn off the light/Turn up the volume/Warm/Cold…”For this Café des Sciences lecture, continuing the trend with digital art and technology discussions, we have invited the Head of Research and Creation at the Chronus Art Center Lab – Vytautas Jankauskas to present his fascination with domestic and home technologies.
