These Mad Scientists Want to Replace Solar Panels With Potted Plants

These Mad Scientists Want to Replace Solar Panels With Potted Plants

Akousmaflore is an interactive installation, a small garden composed of living musical plants, which react to human contacts. Each plant reacts in a different way to contact by producing a specific sound. The plant «language» or song occurs through touch and the close proximity of the spectator. Our invisible electrostatic aura acts on the plant branches and encourages them to react. The plants sing when the audience is touching or stroking lightly them. A plant concert is created.

This noise-instrument was made from Lower Austrian Moss. Each of the three moss elements functions as variable resistor, that influences the sound in different ways. Depending on humidity the moss parts are able to conduct electric current with changing resistance, variegating their interactive quality.

http://pleased-fp7.eu/ this research project is dedicated to analyzing the reactions of plants to all kinds of environmental stimuli and creating  sort of a digital vocabulary out of that. In the end the idea is to establish a whole network of plants that lets you supervise the environment and maybe directly communicate with nature.

Spore 2.0 is a self-sustaining ecosystem for a rubber tree plant purchased at Home Depot. In this project, Home Depot is responsible for the plant in two ways: first, an unconditional guarantee to replace it, second, through an implied cybernetic contract. If the company does well by showing stock growth, so does the plant. If the company suffers losses, Spore 2.0 does not get watered.

All living organisms, plants as well as animals and humans, constantly emit electric impulses. The amplitude of these impulses varies depending on the interior and exterior milieu of the organism. Yucca Invest Trading Plant combines this information with stock market know-how.
