2011: TELEMATIC TALES, Kjen Wilkens

Summer Research Resident

Current proposals from designers and architects suggest that a future filled with sensor-embedded products and buildings might not be too far away. Telematic Tales explores the implications of this pervasively networked ecology on the stories that we tell. The constant recording of data introduces the potential to read specificity and compare information spanning time and place. To what extent could ubiquitous sensor recordings inform how we perceive, remember and retell our day?
