The Plants is a site-specific musical installation that invites participants to create their own musical compositions using unique digital instruments... Plants!
By touching the leaves on these plants you activate a micro computer that triggers sounds developed by the composer Cayn Borthwick. As you explore The Plants you create the musical experience for yourself as well as those around you. The Plants convert carbon dioxide and water into oxygen and your touch into music! Get intimate with nature, make music with the marigold and compose with the chrysanthemum.
The Plants was proudly commissioned by the Abbotsford Convent Foundation. Find out more here: In Conversation with 'PLAYSpace' artist, Glen Walton The Plants by Glen Walton, Composer Cayn Borthwick, Film by Lily Youngsmith
