The Connected Club is a series of presentations related to Waag
Society's-programme 'Connected! The making of a live art exchange'. Tony
Schneidler is invited to talk and discuss the topic of "The dynamic scale
of interactive space" and to present the Remote-home-project.
The RemoteHome: a new home for the mobile society
The RemoteHome is a flat share that will exist in two distant cities at the
same time: London and Berlin. Both spaces are electronically connected
through the Internet, to turn furniture and architectural elements into
tangible and sensual means of communication.
Sensory and kinetic devices, as well as an interactive light installation
allow for the exchange between this remotely living group of friends. A
mobile wireless artefact, in the shape of a transforming interactive bag,
can be taken on journeys to stay emotionally in touch with the RemoteHome.
The project is an architectural response to the emerging notion of a
remote-society; a society that is forming personal bonds beyond sharing
origin or geographical proximity, a culture that is constantly on the move.
Information technologies, in all its shapes, have led to a separation
between the body of the messenger and the message itself. Relationships
between people are increasingly sustained, formed or even ended over long
distances, through the use of communication technologies, like the mobile
phone, e-mail or instant messaging.
The RemoteHome is proposing more intuitive ways of communicating and
exchanging presence. The materiality of the architecture becomes the
medium, the space transforms into a metaphysical reflection of its inhabitants.
The project was presented as two connected prototype spaces at the London
Science Museum and the Raumlabor in Berlin.
The project was developed by Tobi Schneidler in cooperation with the Smart
Studio / Interactive Institute Stockholm and the Future Textiles department
at the Central Saint Martins in London.
