Home Smart Home: exhibition
Everyday devices, such as a TV, a fridge, the thermostat, an alarm clock, are being increasingly linked to the internet. They are then referred to as smart or connected devices. You can adjust the lighting in your house using an app and order your groceries using a digital home assistant like Amazon Alexa or Google Home. Your habits are recorded and devices are better able to judge your needs so that you have to make fewer decisions yourself. At the same time, they save your data and sell it on to large companies.
In the Albert Van Abbehuis, VPRO Medialab explores the future of living together with smart devices at home. In the CONNECT room you can see the newest devices that improve how we run our households. In the DISCONNECT room the visitor is disconnected from smart digital systems by special artworks that sketch a contrarian, disconnected scenario. The exhibition includes three short films made by young filmmakers who present possible scenarios of the near future in a smart home. The short films are made by: MAYA (Nils and Anouk Vleugels), ALEX (Levi Verspeek and Roman Strijbos), RITA (Elly Scheele and Ivo van Aart).
