Introduction: Alliance between nature and digital technology
Domestic plant behaves artificially like a wild animal in captivity.
Domestic plant is a plant with animal’s behaviours. It is tied to a leash and has the faculty to move and explore it interaction’s space. Timid, wild, it tries to run away humans who would approach it. When it doesn’t escape us, Domestic plant reacts to the human touch by a sonorous language, a kind of scream. As living being, it is sensitive to our electrical aura, composed of electrostatic energy.
In our artwork, we create hybrids between plants and digital technology. Plants are natural sensors and are sensitive to various energy flows. We display the effects of random data flow and plant interaction. The data is modified as the spectator meanders around and touches the installation, resulting in a movement and a random musical universe.
By making sensitive what escapes to our perception, we want to underline that our environment is not made of inert things, but alive, reactive to our biological influence.
Our approach of the interactivity aims to question our inter-relationships with our social and natural environment through sensory stagings. Through Domestic plant, we propose an ambiguous point of view on our relationships with animal and vegetal nature and on the domestication that leads to kinds of pets or decorative and «living-objects».
