    We present Videos of Things: videos portraying the lived-with world of our material speculations. We situate the artifact within an ecology and brings into focus the subtleties of everyday life by focusing not on the thing, but on humanness, patterns of time and non-humans and ensebmles. The videos serve as a communication tool for these elements that were previously difficult to represent, as well as a speculative design tool for envisioning long term lived-with experiences the artifacts. The other half features Lyssna: a counterfactual artifact that functions as a hearing aid for your refrigerator. When it is moved across the door of your fridge, you hear the sounds of the food in the fridge. Lyssna creates a unique sound for every food item. The sound changes over time, representing the state of freshness and the accompanying flavor of the food.
