the sound of speech as it echoes in the cloud

The Sound of Speech As It Echoes in the Cloud is an assemblage of voice agents that invites us to reroute our attention to the unfamiliar, our relational realities, and the ruins of the always-already.  Project by Tropozone Collective.

Unfamiliar Convenient

Unfamiliar Convenient is set to challenge the limits of smart home objects in order to introduce a range of peculiar behaviors. The first inquiry in an envisioned series studies the relationship between a voice assistant and a vacuum cleaner. The project aims to draw a clearer distinction between the two often coupled definitions, the "internet of things" and "the smart home", as a prerequisite to imagine alternatives for dominant servitude-driven relationships with everyday technologies. What if domestic appliances were to be considered a species?
