Abstract

My research examines the values, norms and practices of subcultures formed as an “alternative” to the dominant way of life. In particular, I explore how technology relates to alternative forms of interaction or be understood and reconstructed through alternative concepts or frameworks. For the past two years I have been conducting fieldwork on communities pursuing alternative lifestyles: minimalists and tiny house enthusiasts. This work considers how those alternative lifestyles may contribute to an understanding of objects, spaces in home. Through my fieldwork and research through design, I hope to offer an alternative vision to living with IoT and envision future domesticity in a unique and even groundbreaking way.
