Turn Your Garden Into a Soundsystem
Alex Steffen, 21 Jul 04

This has been covered everywhere, but it's just too cool to pass up: a Japanese company is coming out with an amplifier that sits in flower pots and sends vibrations up the stems of planets to make their flowers act as speakers. Apparently the plants kind of like it, too.

Combining this with the photo-sensitive fungi artists have used as a medium on which to develop their negatives into living photographs, is the day of all-living immersive gallery experiences far off? I can easily imagine a world where gardens and galleries were indistinguishable. < / futurist rant >

"...is the day of all-living immersive gallery experiences far off?"

Well, yeah! It's called the real world. Color/fragrance/sound/texture/taste of spring meadow, redwood forest, tidal pool.

(Maybe my era is showing, but I'm still more interested in experiencing and nurturing living systems than in virtualizing them -- as interesting and probably worthwhile the latter is.)
