Plants Have a Voice
GENERATIVE ART, ELECTRONICS,
INTERACTIVE SOUND INSTALLATION
How it feels to be a plant?
Plants have a Voice is a generative and interactive soundscape installation that translate a plant's perception into sound that human can listen.
The electrical impulses of the plants, the soil moisture value and light condition are captured by the sensors put on the plants. They are then translated into soundscape by programmed electronic circuits.
The soundscape reflects this particular plant’s state of mood. It also responses to human touch.

Two material were used: wood and acrylic. They stands for the feeling of natural and artificial.
The sound is natural yet artificial because it comes from the plants but it’s translated into electronics.
Instead of hiding every parts in the box I chose to show the electronic parts by using the clear material, which I hope to spark skeptical thought from the audience: whether this sound is from the plants or is programmed.
