Communicative Vegetation

Tech harnesses the power of plants for artistic or functional uses

Implications - The communicative abilities of plants are being channeled through tech in a variety of ways that can be both functional and creative in nature. This new form of vegetation care allows researchers to understand plant-life in a new way, and provides information to individuals with a green thumb, or to the agriculture industry at large. This shift also indicates a continuation of the heightened emphasis on visceral, emotion-based research – which is increasingly being recognized when it is used in tandem with more standardized methods of research.
