This built landscape encompasses the viewer and calls into question the relationship between the work—a benevolent technological host—to viewer—an input-seeking biological organism. A pressure sensitive platform allows Seedling’s soft  white reeds to move in seemingly instinctual organic fashion in response to the viewers’ presence. From the tops of the reeds hang forty-four, five inch CRT monitors. Animations of simulated electro/chemical processes and microbial life, made by scanning and animating consumer materials such as Play Doh, shoe inner soles and bubble gum, play over the CRT’s. Each animation has its own distinct sound composition that takes its cue from sounds typically found near marshes and streams but is in fact made with samplers and tape loops.
