Symbiotic Interaction

WEARABLES, 2016-2017

The artwork consists of two wearables that allow us to measure and monitor our environment through the platens that are integrated into them, and that act as an interface with the user to alert him or her of environment changes.

The plants are connected to sensors,  developed by the artists, capable of capturing the electrical alterations generated in plant organisms, depending on the changes produced in their environment.

These are translated into modifications in colors, sounds, and graphics, with the wearable rearer can observe.
The artistic project tries to establish a symbiotic human-plant relationship. While humans obtain information from their environment through vegetation, they offer their CO2 to plants in return. A drip irrigation system is also integrated in the interface.
