The main focus of the presentation was how would the interaction with the drawing happen. I believe there was excitement at the idea of been able to use the projected heartbeat monitor, I would love to experiment with these. There was questions raised regarding how you would take peoples data and use it in the piece of work. Would you give forms out at the begginging of space and allow people to freely give a sample of themselves? I’d like this as a performance, asking people for example, to spit into a petri dish and have a way to analyse the fluid to put into there own individual drawing.
Following on from the discussion with others in the group after the presentation I started to look at biology of where our plant life comes from. The main theory is that it started with life in the oceans, plants evolved from algae. Although I’m not too much focusing on these questions. But it did get me thinking about how algae and bacteria grow, spores or bacteria swam and grew at incredible rates, ofter reproducing themselves. I found this image below from a group of scientist that study these growths and model the DNA of them on the computer and compare them to different plants on the evolutionary scale to get a better idea how plants evolve and if we can create our own
