Objects are smart. The Internet of Things is alive.
It knows what we want before we've even realised that we want it...

Jacob Ewens is a third year music student at Keble college and Ruth Spencer Jolly is in her final year at the Ruskin studying Fine Art. Both are film enthusiasts and believe strongly in the power of music to influence mood and emotion. They have approached the Anima brief cinematographically creating a short, narrative film which questions where technology might take us and how many decisions it might start making on our behalf. Technology with initiative could be a double-edged sword.
