Symbiotic Interaction

WEARABLES, 2016-2017

The project consist in two wearable tech garments continuing on from our previous research Clorofila 3.0. In the Clorofila project small electrical vibrations in plants were measured through sensors and algorithms, and it was discovered that the data changed depending on changes in external environment such as in temperature, distance of objects, atmospheric pressure or light makes a reaction in the plant.

In Symbiotic Interaction garments have been constructed to carry tiny plants that can measure and monitor the surroundings, working as an interface for the changes and relating environmental data to the wearer.

This project has been created thanks to SoftLab Residency Scholarship at Sliperiet - a part of Arts Campus at Umeå University. Sweden
