Simbiosis Meditativa

Meditative Symbiosis is a transdisciplinary project that explores a state of interdependence between a living organism and an electronic system, looking for an aesthetic result of this digital-biological process. In special containers, a plant's photosyntesis process is readed by carbon dioxide sensors, creating real-time data which is processed by computers. From this data, generative graphic patterns are created, which then "returns" to the plant being projected over its surface, and influencing again its photosynthesis by the intensity of light and the graphic patterns variation. All this process creates a constant cycle of data while the plant grows and the digital pattern evolves in a mutual dependence.
