On the Secret Life of Things – Familiar objects, new behaviours

Created by Steffen Hartwig, On the Secret Life of Things is a series of experimental prototypes that explore the new and ubiquitous rituals of everyday life. By repurposing familiar objects, the project re-imagines them for the age of information. A calculator no longer needs to calculate, a power strip does not simply provide power and the phone no longer needs humans to be operated. These objects nonetheless still perform their basic functions, but are mediated through information networks.
