Book on Interaction Research Studio project “Energy Babble” now available

 

The Energy Babbles are a set of computational devices that act “like automated talk radios obsessed with energy”: they recount energy policy announcements and information on demand and production, remarks about energy conservation made on social media, and comments entered by other Babble users. The devices were designed by Goldsmiths’ Interaction Research Studio in collaboration with STS researchers, and the story of their development is now available in a book published by Mattering Press. You can download the PDF online for free, or buy a paperback copy (link on the Mattering Press website).
