The AudioVisual Garden is a botanical installation for Conflux Bendigo of sound and light that creates interactions between the energy existing in living plants and people with images and sounds in a quest to appreciate and recognise our place in nature. Perhaps even to find glimpses of hidden forms of communications, exchange or fields of influence between plants and people.
A collection of indoor plants, multi-channel audio and large-format video projection form the AudioVisual Garden. Selected plants are wired up via sensors and signal translators to directly generate and manipulate sound and visuals according to parameters and structures collaboratively designed with the plants by composer Anthony Lyons and visual artist Paul Fletcher. The aim is an installation that is continually influenced by plants and their bio-feedback signals generating beautiful evolving patterns and shapes of light and sound. Further info on Anthony & Paul's collaborative work with sound, light and plants can be found at AntPaul Projects.
