Aim to use plants as interface connect our physical and digital lives together. Plant Interface / Under Bed Farming / Listen to Indoor Forest


In 60-70 of the last century – the 1970s scientists to explore “The Secret Life of Plants,” argue that if plant is really just a plant. they experiment with the plant connected to the polygraph machine and plant attempts to prove humans have the ability to think and communicate. Now, we live in the era of Internet of Things , technology enable people have the ability to interpret nature, we collected data nature (including humidity, light, temperature, etc.) trying to d the code the secrets of plant growth, understanding the relationship between plants and the dissemination of information through the root system. Will this changed the relationship between plants and people ? We try to use plants as interface connect our physical and digital lives together.

An exhibition of 2D prints and sculpture objects, generated in code. The work represents the efforts of the students in the Spring 2016 section of Programming Design Systems, taught by Rune Madsen.


c o ( d e ) s i g n is a collection of work made in the Programming Design Systems class. The two and three dimensional works represent a variety of applications for building designs purely with code. Each project represents a unique algorithmic approach to computational systems which solve a variety of design problems.
