The project »log files. stories from the internet of things« creates design proposals that explore new ways of visual communication between humans and machines in an imaginary near future. Our project imagines a series of artistic what-if scenarios using methods of speculative design which investigate the life of Internet of Things (IoT) black boxes. These artistic findings reveal possible implications of emerging technologies in the IoT, like privacy, transparency, and participation. Visual stories provide a lens for exploring the social, ethical, and aesthetic implications of society-technology relations in the era of connected things.
