Abstract or Description

The Energy Babble was developed by the studio as part of the Energy and Co-Designing Communities project. It is a domestic appliance that broadcasts comments and sounds sent from a network of Babbles. Described as familiar, playful and ambiguous, it was designed to provoke debate within communities. The Babble was deployed to thirty homes as part of a project that explored the imaginative and emotional dimension of energy usage and the potential of people’s imaginative application of technologies.
