Past projects, Exhibitions, AND Festival 2015: Dream of Flying / Chiara Esposita

18 September – 06 December 2016

Sometimes, a plant dreams of flying! Movements in plants are usually associated with growth or following the sun. Some plants get their nutrients from the air, others use the wind to let their seeds move quicker and need the action of insects or birds to reproduce. This plant has chosen to fly a drone!

In the accompanying video you can watch how artist Chiara Esposita has created a computer interface, which measures the electrical activity of the plant and as a result enables the plant control of the flight and navigation of the drone.

Exhibited as part of the group show Seeing The Forest Through The Trees at AND Festival 2015.
