Reconfigurable House allows visitors to create its interface


The “Reconfigurable House”, an interactive art project by Usman Haque and Adam Somlai-Fischer is an environment constructed from thousands of low tech components that can be “rewired” by visitors. The project is a critique of ubiquitous computing “smart homes”, which are based on the idea that technology should be invisible to prevent DIY. According to the artists: “Smart homes actually aren’t very smart simply because they are pre-wired according to algorithms and decisions made by designers of the systems, rather than the people who occupy the houses.” In contrast, the”Reconfigurable House” project can be reconnected endlessly as people change their minds so that the House can take on completely new behaviors.
