Vanessa writes in with another cool project involving plants and Arduino, made by Halfmachine.dk –
The Singing Plant is an installation that lets the audience interact with a natural plant. ,When the plant is touched it gives feedback in the forms of sounds and light. The more people touch the it, the more enegetically it responds. The sound gains volume and the light in the room grows from dim to bright.
Peoples reactions become part of the installation. We have seen people pity the plant. We have seen people caress it. And we have seen people dance enthusiastically around it.
The purpose is not to provide answers, but to question established preceptions of the relationship between man, machine and nature.
