Abstract [en]

Where is technology heading? And how will our behaviors towards these new innovations look? This project questions the direction of ”beyond smart” products, through scenarios within our everyday life. The work is both critical and speculative. Speculative in the sense that it is speculating in how a future scenario with ”beyond smart” products would look like. And by beyond smart I refer to the fact that the products would posses extreme features. Such as complexity and irationalism. But also to be spontaneous and self aware. At the same time the work is questioning, and perhaps criticising, if this sort of development really is beneficial for us or not. If we would turn to technology and smart products for a solution to our desires and problems, how would our human relationships towards each other look? And also how would we interact with these future products and what would the consequences of that be?
