Floral Automaton – Digital growth with physical adaptation

Created by Thomas Grogan, 'Floral Automaton' is a sculptural device that grows flowers digitally. Using various sensors taken from Smart Cities technologies, it reacts and adapts itself to its environment in real time.

The installation is comprised of sensors that behave like instruments that translate chemical or mechanical stimuli such as light, temperature, gas concentration, speed and vibration across analogue and digital sensors into electrical resistors and voltage signal. By using the information collected by several sensors, Floral Automaton interprets our physical ‘decor’ to generate a computational environment.
