    pea, motion system, irrigation system, controller

    Based on the lurching movement of a green pea on a white plate, this installation system imitates this movement in an artificial way. The system is controlled by a camera that recognizes the position of the pea and actuates its movement without allowing it to fall from the plate. In this relationship of reciprocity, the pea reacts to the controlled plate and the plate reacts to the movement of the pea. This special interconnection brings natural, technical and artificial elements together. Next to the tracking system is an irrigation system that waters a pea plant.
