Home of the Future is dedicated to the everyday life of man and machine. Once men believed in progress, innovation and perfection. All kinds of things had been invented, developed and optimized – all for the sake of the well-being of humankind. Since technology improved, one also had to realize how things got messed up. Breakdowns and shortcomings of technology appeared: undesirable developments, errors, ecological crisis and catastrophes, digital waste, internet addiction, etc. Techno-dystopias have become part of our everyday life and Big Brother sneaks into our daily routines constantly. Some people grow rich with user data, some others get lost in the internet. It is a love-hate relationship with all of these gadgets, which becomes more and more obsessive and uncontrollable. How was all this once imagined? How did it turn out? And what is next?
