Ecosystem I is an exploration into power and control, passive and active engagement.
Each plant has specific needs and wants due to their diverse backgrounds coming from ecosystems across the world. When they are planted next to each other they form a motley crew, a diverse community.
Embedded into the soil and plants sensors are measuring the wellbeing of each plant, and a system was developed to translate these measurements into a soundscape over a 16-channel sound system allowing the plants to communicate with each other and the audience. But will the audience listen?
