The Sensitive Screen

An interactive installation using motors and the amazing, touch-reactive Mimosa Pudica plant, The Sensitive Screen is a hilariously slow-moving, living screen. When motors brush certain plants, the leaves collapse inwards -- these function as "off pixels" against the "on pixels" of the open plants. Since it takes about ten minutes for the plants to reopen, The Sensitive Screen moves at the blazingly fast speed of 6 frames per hour. A little more on the project can be found here.

Ecological artwork

I make artwork about the natural world; my most recent involves watercolor drawings of anole lizards and interactive live plant pedestals. I also have series of roadkill and dodo oil pastel drawings. As a bonus, I uploaded videos of students poking at the plants in the interactive pieces and saying things like, "I think we should light them on fire." And then doing so.
