Remedios Zafra published “A connected room of one’s own” in 2012 (in Spanish in 2010), an essay which critically explores the redefinition of private spaces as nodes. It also focuses on their relationships with a possible new conformation of the self and its emancipation within this public-private scene marked by the Net.
“A connected robot of one’s own” consists on a robot that reads parts of this essay to other robots. They do not only answer but, at the same time, learn from the conversations by means of the inevitable repetition of the reading.
