Unexpected Ecosystems is an installation that aims to explore the interaction between plants and soft machines through the use of Artificial Intelligence. The plants’ intelligence and the AI cohabit in the installation, together learning and creating unexpected collaborations between both beings.

The machines, fed by the electrofisiology data from the plants, learn from the electrical activity of the plants and thanks to an AI evolve each day. The plants also learn from their environment and from their relationship with the machines.

Another global AI synchronizes all the soft machines in the installation, which means that what one machine discovers the others learn too.

This artwork is part of the research project Other Intelligences. Plant-Human Interespecies Dialogues. Work produced with the support of a 2020 Leonardo Grant for Researchers and Cultural Creators, BBVA Foundation.
