Inspired by the Secret Life of Plant and The Hidden Geometry of Flowers
As the flower petals unfold they reveal their innate geometric perfection connected to the sacred geometry that underlies the of all creation. The hidden beauty of the flower, the plant, the tree is essential to humanity; we “resonate with the hidden patterns” and have embedded this geometry in our sacred art, architecture & culture.
This same unfolding can be found in the root, to the tree/plant, to the branch and into the veins of the leaf. The ‘whole’ is hidden in the ‘part’. Each part of a tree or plant is self-referential, a fractal hologram of itself. The micro contains the macro and the marco contains the micro.
There is a pre-existent “ratio”, the Fibonacci, to which all life and ourselves grow. As we meditate on a flower/plant/tree we can become more consciousness of the interrelationships and the grand design behind all of creation. “Geometry is the art of the ‘ever-true’”, Socrates.
Through this revelation we have the philosophy and experience to create a more holistic understanding of life. “Numbers are the reverberation and pulsations on the One,” K.B.C
“We are each the microcosm of the macro. The patterning hidden in a flower also enables all life to achieve an active state of balance that we call harmony, which is a prerequisite if the health of each of Earth’s vital life support systems”. The Prince of Wales – The Secret Life of Plants
Plant Songs: Music of the Plants
Inspired by the book The Secret Life of Plants, technology is used to transform plants into musical instruments – playing sounds otherwise inaudible to the human ear.
Within the installation one will have the opportunity to explore a series of plants linked with sensitive electrodes measuring the electromagnetic changes on their leaf surfaces. Through this multi-channel interactive experience and soundscape audience members literally become ‘plant players’ through their touch, proximity and creative interactions with the plants.
Data collected is converted into ‘plant music’ allowing the plant kingdom a special voice to communicate back to us through interactive biofeedback. Each plant reacts in a different way to stimuli and responds with its own unique intelligence. Like us, each plant has its own distinct voice!
The whole experience aims to assist in starting a dialogue necessary to re-establish a balanced relationship between humanity with the greater environment, “giving nature the voice to speak”.
“It is fact: man can and does communicate with plant life. Plants are living objects, sensitive, rooted in space. They may be blind, deaf, and dumb in the human sense, but there is no doubt in my mind that they are extremely sensitive instruments for measuring man’s emotions. They radiate energy forces that are beneficial to man. One can feel those forms! They feed into one’s own force field, which in turn feeds energy back to the plant.” – Marcel Vogel.
