Wood Wide WEB
Wood Wide Web is a light installation that simulates the network of underground connections that trees, fungi and bacteria use to communicate with each other. The installation transmits a visual representation of how these living beings connect their roots and, via biochemical and electrical signals, are able to feed, look after themselves and even warn each other about possible threats.
Trees, fungi and bacteria may not possess a brain like humans do, but they don't need one either, because together they form one giant brain. We have built an artificial World Wide Web in order to speed up communication, but nature has been working on its own version for a very long time.
