Symbiotic Interaction

WEARABLES, 2016-2017

Symbiotic Interaction is a body-worn technological interface that promotes a plant-human symbiotic relationship, in an intimate and personalized way.

Plants are sensitive to the environment that surrounds them, his living beings perceive different factors and environmental changes that humans cannot perceive with our natural sensors.

Through  the interface, five plants connected to sensors  based on plants electrophysiology are monitored by  measuring the reactions of these living beings in real time.This changes are perceptible for the wearer through changes in color, sound and graphics, visible through the body-worn interface, which allow her to identify  patterns in the plants behavior.
