Monstera in Conversation
By Elham Shafaei
This project provides a series of absurdist podcasts about dialogues between humans and Monstera plant to determine the importance of nature in humans’ life during the time of pandemic. I use a specialized device that translates electrical variations in plant into musical pitches. The result is a continuous stream of pleasing music/sound that gives us a sonic window into the secret life of plants. I use Monstera’s ‘voice’ to converse with the invited humans (guest/s) and create a series of absurd dialogues. Here, Monstera is in conversation with its guests!
