Clorofila 3.0


Clorofila 3.0 researches the elctric impulses produced by plant organisms. A program specifically created for the project, it captures the changes in the voltage to reflect the state of the plant by translating them to sound in real time through a module set up inside the organism.

These devices measure the electric charges that vary according to the temperature and chemical system of the plant or other external factors, such as pressure, air movement, light or proximity of phisical objects. These measurements are matched with a series of these organism by transferring electrical impulses to emotional expresions that are entirely imperceptible to the human senses.
