Abstract

This paper introduces a creative environment for designing interactive systems with living plants. This research aims to support designing dinamic interactions and interface between humans and nature. We verify availability of plants for interactive systems through researches of related works and plant's behavior. According to the researches, we have developed an I/O device that utilize plants' systems, a monitoring software and a plant database system. As a result, we built up a platform for designing botanical interface, products that support communication between human and plants, a module unit for environmental design that visualize plants' biorhythms, media for supporting cultivation and agriculture, a music instrument for collaboration between human and plants, and an ambient display that presents digital information by manipulating plants' growth and figure. Furthermore, it describes a result of the workshop, discussions, conclusions and future works.
