come dance w/ the city
On the mutating form of rave partying.
The geode-like structure comes shipped in a box. Made of few electronics and mostly 3d printed parts, it’s easy to reproduce if wanted. It gets assembled, and once rolled to the selected location works as a moving disco.
It’s motherboard gets connected through two electrodes to the chosen plant, and it translates electricity and vibration into sound. Once discovered how quick trees can detect moods and sense where they’re planted, we theorized how them could bridge contemporary living to the re-appropriation of empty spaces ideas of rave partying.
Being able to facilitate people’s ability to sense the place they live in, the idea is to bring back, through music and subsequently dancing, a strong connection between inhabitants and the contemporary living experience, translating the idea of repossession that used to dictate past rave culture.
Come dance w/ the city, come dance w/ us.
