Krešimir Damjanović “collage house”


This story depicts one’s daily life becoming a fulfilling one through roundabout recommendations called the “ukaimmend (ukai (roundabout) + recommend)” suggested by the AI House. This is a house with characteristics in which one returns to this house once a day. In other words, inside the AI house, the AI recommends something in which something good is likely to happen based on the data scanned by architectural elements. In order to find this, the protagonist, while suspicious, will go out into town and venture out into the everyday world as if to go out “net surfing.” As a result, the protagonist will experience various experiences that he or she has never noticed before. It depicts an acknowledged daily life as if the Internet has fallen into the real world. This is a new form of coexistence in which the machines do not alienate the humans, and I believe that the future AI house is full of possibilities that will allow us to experience many things.
