BioRhythm is a multi-sensory immersive public art installation.

BioRhythm is an adaptable sculpture that comes alive by synthesising the biofeedback of plants as they interact with their urban surroundings, transforming the data into dreamy soundscapes and explosions of colour. Come and experience the plants as they produce their own music and light show.

Showcasing a unique intersection of the natural and digital worlds, the installation aims to ignite curiosity, discovery and connection within the public realm. BioRhythm blurs the lines between biology, technology and place by integrating colour, lighting, sound and plants into a living structure that responds to its surroundings through sensor technology.

Supported by the City of Melbourne.
