GreenScreenRefrigeratorAction (2010) shows a shiny black Samsung smart fridge pondering its existence and mingling with like objects. In a scientifically charged description that concerns its inner workings, the fridge’s anguished, robotic first person voice over renders audible its inner life and its potential dreams. As we create increasingly smarter objects, Mark Leckey predicts a world in which things become sentient, start communicating, and alter our environment into new digital ecosystems.
