This one-day workshop, situated in an AirBnB home, intends to engage participants with concerns of the domestic across a wide spectrum of HCI practice; from those designing technologies to configure space, makers and hackers of the Internet of Things, those seeking to promote behavioral change in the home and those envisaging new forms of domestic space; critically and uncritically. Through provocations, installations, artifacts and demonstrations we shall question the degree of personal agency that these technologies afford the inhabitant. In doing so we expect to find both points of unity and points of debate which we shall document in a short film, to be shared with the community and beyond.
