Drone Garden – Network bandwidth as a resource for survival

Created by Martin Reiche and exhibited at his solo exhibition titled "NN - Compuatability, Survival, Cybergenesis" at Transmediale 2015, Drone Garden is an installation addressing the issue of naturality in a networked and virtualised environment.

The installation creates a utopian garden through wires, circuit boards, cables and other circuitry - a garden in which all of their inhabitants, the plants (drones), are constantly fighting for resources (network bandwidth). This fight, happening on packet level on the network sockets and in the memory of the “plants”, is fuelled by an instinctive codified behavior which is visualized on the screen.
