The Plants also Look at the Stars, 2019

We imagine an interspecies garden in which plants, animals and humans cohabit with cyborg-robotic  systems controlled by plant organisms.
 
Bases on earlier research we did, we propose an interactive garden in which we use sensors to measure the electrical oscillations of connected plants, thereby demonstrating their biochemical responses to the presence of humans, other living creatures and the environment around them.
 
All this information is processes and translated into vibrations, movements and sounds and these will enable visitors to perceive the plants, thus building a complex and interspecies system that fosters communication between humans and plants and so arriving at better understanding of the language of plants and hence of nature, something that would de impossible without the aids of robotic systems. This system of sensors translates and transmits those signals that we humans would otherwise be incapable of picking up due to the limitations of our system of perception.
 
We also work to provide a confortable space where species can co-exists. We create a series of a large sculptures that are organic in appearance and designed to ensure the wellbeing of plants. At the same time, these sculptures build a pleasant an habitable space for citizens that will include robotic systems. These systems, controlled by plant organisms, will enable us to perceive patterns of behaviour and will give us insights into the language of these plants. In addition, various large soft interfaces arranged around the garden will help citizens to experience for themselves the recorded responses o plants through a range of electronic devices.

Statement

Our work as art group brings together a collection of works and projects in which we study the interrelations and intersections that occur between machines and the human being.

We approach these issues in different kind of pieces: Interactive installations, sound interventions, multimedia pieces, etc. However, the support is not more than one channel that canalize the project itself.

A transversal and interdisciplinary research where the machine, far from a cold body, acts as an integrating factor, multiplying human capacities for equal us to other living beings or mechanical things already equipped with them.
