Augmented Ecologies

It might take a while before this goes mainstream, if ever, but there is a certain luster in being a plant VJ.

Augmented Ecologies is an installation by Guido Maciocci, who rigged up plants with sensors to create a kinesthetic user experience with movement, touch, sound and light. When the user touches the plants or pressure sensitive moss they create different types of musical notes.

Glad to see the project is generating some interest! Thanks again Koert for posting it.
Great projects Ricardo! I'm particularly impressed by your project Plantas Parlantes. You may be interested in another small project I did on the same theme entitled Green Village.

Nice piece of work. Reminds me the Interactive plant growing that Christa and Laurent did back in 1993 i guess.

Should men be able to give birth to children?

Koert van Mensvoort: Is the artificial womb frankenstein-like symbol of (male) engineers trying to steal the magical womb from women? Or… is it a feminist project and needed to reach through equality between the sexes? I personally lean towards the latter. To me it feels like progress if a girl can tell a guy to carry the womb for a change.
