DATA GARDEN, THE SWITCHED ON GARDEN AT BARTRAM’S GARDEN
During the 2011 DP Festival, attendees made their way to Bartram’s Garden, the oldest surviving botanical garden in North America, for an interactive exhibition exploring the relationship between plants, music, and technology. Live music, performance, and sculpture blurred the distinction between biological and digital worlds.
