Symbiotic Interaction is an artwork that investigates,through artistic methodologies, about the symbiotic relationships between humans and plants. The work is addressing from an intimate and personalized approach, through the creation of two technological body-worn interfaces, which facilitate the symbiotic relationship between both living beings.
