CyberGarden v4 videos

CyberGarden v4 was created through the 2011 Smart Geometry Workshop series. It is a multilayered, intelligent system that passes electronic and biological information between layers of manufactured and biological materials. It utilizes a network of light sensors and custom robotic arms to create a self-regulated bacteria farming system. The system is shown as a scale model whereby bacteria could be cultivated at various rates to create different levels of shading within a transparent canopy structure through the density/opacity of the bacteria growth.
