Relationships with Smart Speakers
mixed media

A collaboration between two artist/researchers investigating human - computer relationships. Each researcher interviewed owners of smart speakers to understand their current relationships with their speakers. During the interview, the participants performed playful probe activites such as painting with watercolors and choosing words and emotions. After the interviews, the artist/researchers analyzed the collected data together, and then individually created an artwork describing what could be ascertained from each human-computer relationship. Shown are the finished artworks and the playful probes used in the interviews.
