Abstract [en]

The RemoteHome is a concept for the first remotely shared apartment. It is one place ofliving in two different cities: London and Berlin.This Master’s thesis revolves around the exhibit of the home at the E-cultures Fair inAmsterdam between the 23rd and the 25th of October 2003. It also looks back at previousversions of the RemoteHome in an effort to evaluate how well the home succeeds in one ofits major goals: To represent awareness on distance.The home consist of a set of interactive furniture located at two different places andwith a similar, although not identical, setup.For the exhibition one piece of furniture, the interactive wall, was modified to becomemore responsive and easy to understand. During interviews at the exhibition and the following workshop it became apparent that there was no single answer on how to improveinteractiveness and the feeling of presence. This mostly because the RemoteHome as aproject has more than one goal. It is a product for only a few friends or couple but it isdesigned to be shown for a larger audience.The solution suggested for improving interaction and awareness is to choose betweeneither the home or exhibition setting and continue the development from there.In a home setting the RemoteHome should focus on feedback, privacy and situationadaptation. At the fair it should be more self explanatory and conspicuous in order tomediate any awareness efficiently. Anonymity is one problem that should be dealt with.
