SYMBIOSIS is an interactive sculpture that showcases the important co-dependent relationship between nature and the human race.
Natural existence is progressively becoming endangered by mankind’s endless desire for industrial and infrastructural expansion. It is important to remember we are the ones with all the power that ultimately determines the fate of this world. We are the ones that can make a difference. A balance of natural and man-made creations is what makes our world beautiful. Inspired by Park Seung Mo’s Human series, the flowers were made entirely with aluminum wires. They ‘come alive’ when human touch is detected.
Constructed with silver and copper aluminum wires, the flowers are interactive sculptural installation. The LEDs of each flower light up whenever the flower bud or the roots at the bottom of the vase is touched. Each piece is approximately 30 inches tall, and powered by an Arduino Uno and external power source.
