On 22 September, a singing cactus, a toaster with character and an intrepid suit take to the podium alongside designers, curators and theorists, inviting us to imagine a future world populated by smart objects. The Object Agency provides professional representation for smart objects.
We might live in a future where fridges, lamp posts and pot plants seem to think for themselves. To thrive as a human in this world would mean forming new kinds of relationships with these objects: what happens when your fridge passes comments on your diet, or a lamp post witnesses a crime?
‘Agency’ describes the power and ability to act. More playfully, as the things we design for ourselves become smarter, more intelligent and more interactive, they’re going to demand agency representation for their professional skills!
Looking forward @JS_Diaspora opening a discussion with stimulus from award winning film #MyNameIs @mynameisdocu on 'Decolonising the self before we can decolonise HE & culture' @RADA_London via @InfoTCCE tomorrow as part of a broader event from 1pm to 3pm. Deets to follow in🧵 pic.twitter.com/6ozzJLHTrG
