Event Name: ArtPrize 2016
A Hydroponic PlantBot Community Garden created from recycled animatronic toys and real growing plants grafted onto viewer controlled, interactive mechanical bases. Here, people are motivated to question their food, where it comes from, and where it may be going. PlantBots along with DIY Hydroponic Sound Gardens, Pollinator Videos, Proprietary PlantBot Murals, Interactive Sound Generating Plants and Sharing Stations that provide free information on sustainable food practices and other environmental issues that empower communities to consider the food they eat and how it arrives at their plates in an informative and entraining way. Coupling this poetry with current scientific knowledge on the environmental and social costs of how we grow the bulk of our food today, RE•BOTICA will provoke investigations into current agricultural practices inspiring individuals to think and act more critically on food despite their connections to farming, economic level, education, age or art interest.
