Project Description

Biomodd (2007)

In “Biomodd” by artist Angelo Vermeulen a desktop computer and its monitor are integrated inside a greenhouse. The heat generated by the overclocked computer is used to heat the ecosystem which consists of a variety of plants, while the monitor is used to illuminate the plants. The computer hosts a computer game in which you have to grow plants and protect them. Through playing, the visitors actively modify the piece by generating heat and affecting the interior ecosystem.
