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.
