Duet is a bio reactive installation that features an improvised dialogue exchange between myself and plants by means of a drawing based instrument. Essential to the work is a nature-human-machine collaboration to create an artwork —a transcription from the living to the drawing, which is transmitted through the mechanical movement of a machine.
The installation aims to focus attention on the subtle communication system of plants by translating their electrical conductivity variations into line drawings. It is conceived as a place for reflection upon space, dimensions, and environment, positioning plants at the centre of attention as an active and vital part of the system.
The installation, which could be also seen as a performance, feels for me a meditative process where I focus on the different details of the different plants, trying to understand and analyse them.
