DATA GARDEN: QUARTET will be the first bio-reactive and plant-controlled work of art at The Philadelphia Museum of Art.
Situated in the Megawords exhibition space, participants will be encouraged to accompany four large tropical plants that are fitted with specialized electronic sensors. By converting the physiology of the specimens into data, the plants will perform quadraphonic audio compositions in real time. The very presence of museum goers will affect this performance, resulting in a unique composition from moment to moment.
Participating artists: Sam Cusumano, Alex Tyson, Jessica Hans, Joe Patitucci +more
