There is growing interest in designing smart things that are both connected (IoT) and also acting local. Yet, the explorative behaviors of such smart things in the context of a connected ecology are not much explored. This study explores perceptive qualities of reciprocal interplay [6] from a perspective of systemic relations. We conducted the HiddenLocal workshop with the outcome of four designed IoT systems which emphasize the complexity of things-to-things interaction in different scenarios. This paper reports on one of the four systems and investigates how reciprocal interplay can be designed in the things community of our designed system.
