Nature and the environment that surrounds us are in constant change. To turn our attention to the behavior of other living things as the environment changes is to realize the effects on ourselves, living in that same environment, and that we are all linked in a single ecosystem. In other words, we are constantly receiving messages from the very environment we inhabit.
Plants and animals form closed systems that interact with the natural environment to acquire information and maintain the equilibrium of their internal environments through homeostasis. By examining the natural environment from the point of view of the plants and animals that inhabit it, we can pinpoint the environmental data they gather with the various sensors they possess. The world seen in this way may be totally different from the one we human beings perceive. By investigating how plants, animals, or insects communicate with each other, by exploring their ecologies and their behavior towards each other, we discover new perspectives on how human beings can relate to them as well.
This exhibition, then, focuses on this "invisible communication." The works presented explore our relationships with the natural environment through making it visible or audible, based on biological information, thanks to uses of biosensors. The exhibition also uses computer simulations of the natural environment in an effort to explore new conceptions of the environment these technologies reveal.
