Alien Plants


plastic, fiber optics, electronics

Some plants exhibited: All Worlds Fair 2013 – San Francisco, CA

I created a series of  alien-looking plants out of recyled plastics, fiber optics, LEDs and electronics. I was able to combine organic shapes through heating and shaping a variety of plastics, and technology with color-changing LEDs, to create something familiar, yet alien.

Exhibited: Burning Man Art Festival – Black Rock City, NV

Star Tree was an interactive sound and light sculpture included in the festival centerpiece funded by the Burning Man Organization. The alien tree held light-up “stars” which would flicker and fade while visitors recorded an audio wish upon the 10-foot tall tree and listened to wishes played back randomly.
