Abstract

This paper proposes a workshop on the Internet of Things (IoT) for participation in public life. We will bring together artists, designers, practitioners, and academics interested in site-specific projects involving lighting and other ambient technologies intended to serve community interests such as representation and safety. The authors share their current inquiry on stairwells as an example. Discussion of this project and others will help us locate, trace, and develop networked environments.
