Data Garden: QUARTET at The Philadelphia Museum of Art
Participants were encouraged to accompany four large tropical plants fitted with specialized electronic sensors. The physiology of these living specimens was converted into data by a computer. That data was then translated into commands used to control quadraphonic audio compositions in real time. The very presence of museum goers effected this performance, resulting in new compositions from moment to moment.
Data Garden was kindly invited to create this installation by Megawords, who ran a library and exhibition space in conjunction with the exhibit Zoe Strauss: Ten Years.
