A presentation by James Templeton on view first at the Houston Arboretum and Nature Center, then inside Eleanor Tinsley Park. Video reference for this work can be found here.
“M.E.&T. is a drawing machine outfitted with sensors that track a plant’s rate of photosynthesis. The machine draws the spirling linear plot of this information over time, bearing resemblance to the cross-sectional rings of a tree. Together with the machine, the plant creates a data driven self portrait.
It will be on display at these two locations as well as TX/RX’s new location at a date to be determined later. After that, all the drawings will be compiled and on display at a fourth location that is still undecided.”
