Synplant is an installation that reads the natural environment from the perspective of plants and translates their experiences into audiovisual expressions that can be experienced by humans. The work uses an artificial intelligence-based learning system to analyze the bioelectrical activity of plants in response to environmental stimuli, and based on the results of that analysis, it creates an audiovisual field that represents the invisible trajectories of wind and rain in nature. This work positions plants as subjects of expression and invites viewers to engage with nature in a novel way.
