The ‘Internet of Things’ (IoT) describes the idea of a global network connecting the physical world to the Internet. While this concept has mainly developed around human, market- and technology-driven concerns, this research aims to introduce more-than-human perspectives into the design process of an IoT.

Birgit works with local communities concerned with the water in Wellington’s streams to collaboratively create prototypes of a more-than-human IoT. Read more information about this research.
