Part of a series of experiments inspired by the work of the Indian scientist and writer J. C. Bose. These experiments were taken forward at the Undivided Mind month-long residency at the KHOJ International Artists’ Association .
Plants emit signals in reaction to external stimuli and to communicate. Using home-made electronics, this communication and response to external stimuli like light, sound, touch can be visualised and heard. In another setup, other species like frogs and snails are introduced to the field of the plants.
This is a participatory piece which invites the audience to interact with the organisms, which changes the course of the performance.
