Subversive home practices

The paper on developing an alien presence in the home to create a sort of dramatic tension within living spaces reminded me of a project that I did some work on as an undergraduate. The Home Health Horoscope was designed to be a system of sensors that would try to gauge the emotional state of a home and produce horoscopes based on its readings rather than astrological input. While the system was eventually deemed a failure, it provides another look into producing technology that is ambiguous, interpretive, and “other.”
