Copenhagen Air explores new ways of gathering and interacting with data. Move the brick over the paths to experience air pollution data through audio feedback. The data was gathered using devices the students made and attached to their bikes, picking up data on their daily commutes.

Students sewed and programmed a wearable vest that changes color mirroring the color the sensor picks up. Depending on distance, two motors placed on each hip vibrate in a temporal speed to encourage and challenge people into exploring intimate space, and to indicate the actual distance between people.
Save the Rose
by Jonas Ø. Haugesen, Rune Viuff Petersen & Tobias Holm Jensen, ITU
Inspired by the fairytale of The Little Prince by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, Save the Rose depicts The Little Prince’s rose left on his planet. It is now your duty, as a human, to take care of the rose and make sure that it will not die. Tweet to water or shine on the rose and watch its development on a live webcam.

PyroGraph is a big scale experimental plotter which uses a soldering iron to burn images onto paper. Inspired by the traditional thermal printers used for shop receipts, the PyroGraph can analyse any image and convert it into dots by an image processing algorithm. These dots are then burned with a 450 °C tip on to paper.
Image Of The Future
by Bjørn Karmann, Mette Mørch, Cyrus Kamath, Iskra Uscumlic & Sena Partal, CIID
Image Of The Future asks people to consider the present by reflecting on the future past and is inspired by the ancient art of paper marbling. The machine connects people close to it with people online and lets them create artwork together. The machine serves as the mediator between the two people, that are codependent on each other in order to create the artwork.
The machine releases drops of paint on soap water – a marbling technique that creates circles. The person next to the machine puts paper on top of the paint-covered water to have the image transferred to it.

OTOO explores the various survival strategies of a simple light bulb during its evolutionary path of becoming the fittest object at home. By sensing and learning from its environment, the object starts taking decisions towards its form, function or affordances. This project showcases a series of artefacts that actively compile new physical and digital qualities in order to stay relevant for its owner.

As we welcome artificial intelligence into our homes, we not only have to make it adapt to our lifestyle – their designs will make us change as well. Objects will become increasingly aware of us and companies will design proprietary ecosystems in the name of user benefit. These technologies are promising a better life and users are adopting them, unaware of the downsides and without considering why they need any of it.
The purpose of this project is to highlight the increasing technological presence in our homes and how they are controlling us more than we control them. Our aim is to spark a discussion about the future within AI.
