Flora Luma

Flora Luma is a plant controlled light-art installation. It utilises bioelectrical signals, to drive color-animation of self-illuminating objects.  Electrical signalling constitutes a part of plant vocabulary, employed for intra- and interspecies communication. Recent findings ascertain plants to be much more
