Robotic and
Interactive Installation
1999
The electronic devices connect the gardens and caretake the moss; the botany altered in a subtle way by the viewers. The mechanical arms activate only when people come close to observe. The interaction between technology and the moss gardens directly depends on these visitors.
One can imagine that after years of this interaction, that the gardens would rearrange mounds of moss, peat and sand, altering each landscape through the impact of observation. <<
