AUTOMAT is the collected flotsam and jetsam of our daily conversations about technology, culture, relationships, and environment. Some of these proposals are infeasible, some are silly whims, some have massive privacy implications, and some we simply lack the initiative to bring to life. The scattershot (but pointed) nature of these ideas reflects, we think, the way in which technology has infiltrated our lives, both with and without our consent.

If any of these ideas speak to you, we encourage you to implement them in any form that you envision. And if you do, please drop us a line, we'd love to see it!

Automat is the first project of the Ministry of Interiors. Comments, suggestions, or general inquiries may be sent to: mail@ministryofinteriors.org.
