Plant Intelligence is one of the stages of the multipart project Plant Perception.
The work is still in progress and you can see its digital version.
This project is about forming an emotional connection between a person and a plant through a virtual agent, in order to change the attitude towards plants and raise awareness of the world of flora. To create this emotional connection, we are changing the appearance of the plant’s mediator — the avatar, giving it an anthropomorphic shape. Our installation is a gaming machine. We would like to immerse the viewers in the knowledge of the world of plants.
Technology is becoming one of the tools for understanding non-human agents and researching the topic of interspecies communication between plants and humans.
