Scenocosme: Gregory Lasserre & Anaïs met den Ancxt
Akousmaflore is an interactive artwork installation, a small garden composed of living musical plants, which react to gentle contact. Each plant reacts in a different way to contact by producing a specific sound. The plant "language" or song occurs through touch and the close proximity of the spectator. Our invisible electrostatic energy acts on the plant branches and encourages them to react. The plants sing when the audience is touching or lightly stroking them. A plant concert is created. In their artwork, the artists Scenocosme create hybrids between plants and digital technology. Plants are natural sensors and are sensitive to various energy flows. Digital technologies permit them to establish a relationship between plants and sound. They 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 random musical universe. Audience contacts with plants generate sound effects and change in the texture of the sound.
