Lempo

An interactive sound installation studying the human/plant relation.

Lempo is considered as an old, evil word for love. Love that takes control of you and possess you to do things that are bad.

In this installation, a person can give water and light for the plant and the plant plays a little concert to thank the care-taker. Although the plant and the soil moisture are participating in the music making process, the central idea is completely human centric, and the actions taken might end up being the death of the plant.

In the end the installation comments how human species’ way of “taking care” something related to the nature can be controversial.

Installation process was supported by Taike.
