Waterworks Lane is a bathroom design concept for the future. I aimed to address some questions: how do our bodies respond to buildings? How can we adapt our homes to facilitate prophylaxis healing? The research began my interest in thinking about how buildings could evolve and adapt much like a living organism, working for us, not against. Could we have a symbiotic relationship to where we live, much like that between trees and fungi? Along one wall, sensors were used to capture different frequencies emitted by plants as they communicate with environmental changes in the room.

The Plant Wave captures these signals at frequencies beyond the human perceptual spectrum into a real time musical sound scape. I aim to reconfigure our relationship to plants and fungi through the language of sound.
