Dinacon — the Digital Naturalism Conference on island of Koh Lon in Thailand — has been amazing. It’s been an opportunity to meet and collaborate with other artists, scientists, hackers, writers and more. The caliber of the participants has been extraordinary.
My art experiments have been around creating audio synth compositions from the environment, using low-cost sensors and custom electronics to make site-specific results.
In the last two days, I’ve made two composition-circuits, this one (below) which uses a soil sensor and tracks moisture in the sand.
And this one, which uses electrodes on plant leaves to simulate what the plants might be “saying”.
