The presentation will investigate a phenomon particular to digital societies, the formation of semi-fields (Kelly, 2012) in everyday environments. These are networked spaces, configured across mundane settings like roads and homes, which are organised to facilitate controlled forms of measurement and feed-back but “natural" enough to enable spontaneous interaction. Marres will discuss empirical cases of semi-field formation, focusing on domestic and street trials of so-called intelligent technologies, with the aim of clarifying implications for public engagement and inquiry. The presentation will be followed by an open discussion among the seminar participants

Location: DPU, Aarhus University, Research Programme for Future Technolgy, Culture and Learning, Building J ('The Villa'), Emdrupvej 54, 2400 Copenhagen NV.
