A device that helps humans communicate with plants.
A device that transforms the electrical activity of plants into a physical and meditative movement that we, humans, can observe and contemplate.

<p>The other system I have in mind uses air pressure to inflate or deflate a flexible bag. This replaces the need for ± 12 motors with a single solenoid and an air pump. The control of the final shape is reduced but also the technical barrier, which is a good point. In addition, the movement should be more organic.</p>
