With the advance of digitalisation, items which once had a central position in households have disappeared. The long case clock, for instance, once was a domestic center of information and an important focus in living rooms.
A new household item to replace the position of the domestic clock is the AI assistant, a universal information device which answers every question and operates connected IOT devices on speech commands.
Domestic AI assistants are currently trying to camouflage themselves as "banal" objects. This project is taking a different route, aiming to bring back the idea of the central domestic information unit to contemporary households while signaling that it is driven by artificial intelligence.
It uses a particular computer graphic style for its visual feedback, the outlined stacked plot graph. It became popular through the 1979 album cover "Unknown Pleasures" by English band Joy Division, which showed a stacked plot computer graph of the electromagnetic radiation of pulsar star CP 1919.
