    Plant Sense


Creation Year:



Artist Statement:

    Plant Sense is a project focused in research about how we can create a body interface that allows us to feel the plants in our whole body. We propose to build a wearable device that allows us to connect ourselves with plants, and allow us to forge new bonds human-plant. A new way to feel plants, through our skin, a much more intimate an emotional way.

    During the last years we have been focused in environmental and plants approach in our art works. We have been developing a sensor to measure electrical changes in plants. And thanks to an algorithm we realise that we can measure this changes.

    However we only visualized the state of the plant in our previous projects. Now we would like to go ahead and develop a new stage. We would like to develop a second skin able to communicate plant-human. A second skin that allows us to feel the plants senses in our own body.
