Project Description

Life Support Systems: Vanda (2005)

“Life Support Systems: Vanda” is an installation which registers electrical charges emitted by a Vanda Hybrida orchid, which are measured, digitized and transferred into a Microsoft Xbox, with the goal to create a digital copy of the plant which can be sustained indefinitely. This virtual organism will continue to generate signals which mimic the patterns of the original orchid, even after the real plant deteriorated.
