INTERACTION DESIGN: SPYROS AMPANAVOS
An experiment between nature and technology, this cyborg hanging garden allows plants and artificial lights to coexist and coevolve based on people's movements. As visitors approach the installation, the light spectrum changes to enrich the energy provided to the plants' roots and to enliven the garage’s dark space. The installation makes viewers aware of the diversity of light we encounter in life: the lack of light, homogenous light in interior spaces, and overlighted spaces.
