Combining nature and technology

BIOMODD, Seads Collective | ph Angelo Vermeulen

Are you curious about how plants, computers, and people might come together in new and creative ways?

As a participant in the Biomodd [TTO15] collaborative art project, you will be actively involved in the creation of a hybrid interactive art installation that bridges the gap between nature and technology.
