Shopping in 1999 A.D.

"From the film 1967 1999 A.D., a short sponsored by the Philco–Ford Corporation, showing what home shopping would be like three decades in the future. Although they missed the frenetic pace of today's online shopping experience–the housewife's browsing looks almost leisurely–they guessed correctly on the abundance flat–panel screens (with multiple monitors, no less), even if they were off by about a decade. Oh course, they didn't quite put together that we'd still be using keyboards for input."

(Joel Johnson, 10 September 2007, Boing Boing Gadgets)

[While this forecast is clearly about the potential of information and communication technology it also quite dramatically demonstrates the interdependence of technological development and culture e.g. reinforcing 1960's gender stereotypes.]

Room to Swing a Cat: Parker Morris Standards

"In the early 1960s government tried to map how big each room should be to fit in the furniture associated with it. For example, a bedroom shared by a couple should comfortably accommodate a full–size double bed (minimum 4ft 6in), as well as enough storage for two people’s clothing. The resulting Parker Morris report proposed minimum dimensions for each room and a figure for storage according to how many people lived in a home. Sadly Parker Morris never imagined dishwashers and fridge freezers, home computing and DVDs so his standards are outmoded."

Our House: Documenting A Family House

"By documenting a family house in this way and opening up its space virtually, in a public building, the work examines the evocation of spaces from our past, a wealth of which we all carry around with us and how these memories can be triggered by and effect other spaces we encounter. As in my other solo work, through uncovering the detail of my past and surroundings, the work evokes the spectators? own personal history, raising issues of memory, personal documentation, the persistence of these spaces in our minds, the mnemonic function of spaces and the inevitable sense of loss encountering spaces that have changed."

Un-private house: private becomes public

"The incorporation of technology, as an integrated aspect of modern society, has caused the home/private sphere to become more public in theory as well as in actuality. The accessibility of the outside/public sphere from within the home with the use of technology and the opportunity to work inside the home has become an increasingly popular phenomenon."

(Tanya Oh, Art History 192, Semester 1/Spring 2004, University of California)
