Collaboration - Remote Home Prototype
Remote Home Prototype
The first remotely shared appartment
Tobi Scheidler (project leader)
project was developed within the
Smart Studio-Interactive Institute, Stockholm
"The RemoteHome will be one place of living in two distant cities: London
and Berlin. Communication and media technologies are creating new scenarios
of sharing situations of friendship and intimacy over distance. The rise
of the mobile phone or instant messaging is indicating these new cultures"
This installation was exhibited at the
Fisher Gallery, Cornish College of the Arts, Seattle 10.10.2002
RemoteHome was taken further to a larger scale installation at the Smart Studio in 2003, and was presented at several international exhibitions and conferences (incl DesignMai in Berlin, e-culture fair in Amsterdan, user-mode at Tate Modern, London) For further information on the outcome please visit the project website:
The setup of the exhibition: London - Virtual space - Berlin. An old laptop
hanging in the middle is running the whole installation using Flash.
The Lounge table picks up a responsive media projection that follows its
movement and shifts music to the other side when touched.
