Hylozoic Grove

Hylozoic Grove (exhibited this year at the Ars Electronica Center in Linz, Austria) is a creation of Canadian artist and architect Philip Beesley who calls his sculpture 'geotextile mesh', combining nature and technology within an electrokinetic intelligent machine. This installation contains a dense net of proximity sensors, microcontrollers and actuators, responding to the movements of its 'guests' with waves of its parts spreading over the whole structure. The symbiosis of organic forms with high-tech materials makes interactions - better called dialogues - of the installation and the visitors somewhat mysterious: do you watch or are you being watched?
