Tokyo's Technicolor Greenhouse Gives Plants A Voice

By Tessa Love

Have you ever wondered what vegetables might sound like if given the chance to speak? Or what a disco party thrown by plants might look like? Well, you're in luck. PARTY, a collective of Japanese creatives, has developed a digital, technicolor, touch-sensitive greenhouse in Tokyo’s city-center. Filled with seven types of vegetables, the orchestra-light-show responds with sounds and colored LED lights triggered by the plants you touch. 

In this interactive greenhouse, tomatoes are violins, carrots are trumpets, cabbages are oboes, radishes are flutes, sweet potatoes are pianos, eggplants are harps and pumpkins are clarinets. When one of these plants is touched, the correlating sound is triggered, creating an impromptu orchestra. At the same time, the corresponding lights that lace the roof of the greenhouse are engaged, creating a spectacular, psychedelic light show.
