Polytemporal Timelapses of PLSS Plants,
Timelapse of Flower Lunn's screen of morning glories in the corner of the Topological Media Lab shows plants in their daily rhythms in concert with the rhythms of people, sun and night, passing clouds, and the room's electric lighting. Displaying these in staggered time would help compare their relations to their ambient at different times of solar, electric, social days.
What's most interesting is the interference and relation between the rhythms of the ambient and the plants. Timelapse video by Tim Sutton.
Rather than treat the plants as autonomous beings, we thought of the plants as tracing all the activity of their surround (including themselves) with exquisite sensitivity and material density, infinitely exceeding any trace that man-made sensors could report. The challenge to us shifts from mapping a few numbers from some sparse set of electronic sensors to interpreting the dynamical growth of these plants in a non-reductive and non-anthropcentric way.
