Home exhibition - Deepstash

Home exhibition

Maybe a bit of both, says Sarah Douglas, director of the Liminal Space. She is behind the forthcoming Tomorrow’s Home exhibition at the Museum of the Home in east London, which imagines how we’ll be living three decades hence. “The home of the future could help us flourish in ever more tailored and sophisticated ways,” she says. “But it will be messy as we learn to navigate the huge benefits and ethical questions that new interactive technologies bring.”....

MORE IDEAS FROM Houses of tomorrow: A more hopeful vision of domesticity, or a dystopian nightmare?

So much for the home of 2021! What about the home of 2050? Might it offer a more hopeful vision of domesticity than the dystopian nightmare some of us have been living through these past couple of years? Or are we inexorably sliding into a world of surveillance and atomisation, climate crisis and housing crisis, drowning alone as our meta headsets suck the very data from our souls?

There is a communal kitchen down the corridor, which she shares with a few strangers she met online, but mostly she orders her meals via an interface and eats them here. Microphones record her interactions. A motion sensor on her wrist reminds her to optimise her performance. Filled with saudade for the dying world outside, she has bought a few rainforest plants to brighten the space. Her pocket surveillance device reminds her to water them. She catches the news: the world’s richest man has just left the Earth’s atmosphere.

A better way to live...

Houses of tomorrow: A more hopeful vision of domesticity, or a dystopian nightmare?

In the future, will we find a better way to live, or will our homes be taken over by surveillance and despotic appliances?

Imagine, if you can, a small, bluish room. Wires, screens, sensors. A few keepsakes from the old world. The room’s fleshy inhabitant, confined indoors by a zoonotic pandemic, greenwashes a data-mining company from her bed. The government has made it illegal for her to step outside.

Create the future

The future is a time when the world looks fundamentally different from today.

We need two types of progress to create the future:

  1. Horizontal progress/Globalization (from 1 to n) - Copying things that work somewhere and making them available everywhere.
  2. Vertical progress/Technology (from 0 to 1) - Doing new things that nobody else has ever done.

Disruption Of Daily Habits

The ongoing lockdown, happening in varying degrees across the world, has presented humanity with new challenges, testing their patience and making adherence increasingly difficult. It has led to day-long video calls, irregular sleep patterns and lack of sunlight, which has made it an ordeal.

Before the lockdown, most people had a routine throughout their day, which was completely shaken up. The daily habits helped us make fewer momentary decisions(which require effort), which have now increased manifold. This spike in decision making from everything from how to work, what to wear, what to eat and how to commute, has resulted in decision fatigue.
