FloraSense is an art installation centered on bringing the unseen awareness of plant life to human mediums of perception. Using an array of sensors, human participants will be able to hear the plant’s level of wellbeing translated into an atmospheric chord progression. Moving the plant from its base or lowering its light levels causes dissonant sounds. There is also dynamic sound based on the amount of light available.

How does it work?
Florasense represents an environment monitoring and signaling system that can be altered according to your plants needs.
It consists of a multitude of sensors which monitor the light, temperature, and humidity of the devices surroundings as well as the relative position of the plant pot.
The Daisy Seed Microcontroller stands at the center of this project and accomplishes the signaling role by playing a predetermined chord progression.
There are varying degrees of severity in which the progression is altered according to the values which the sensors send back.

A humidity sensor provides the actual humidity condition within the air at any given point or in any given place
A temperature sensor measures when change occurs in temperature
A light sensor detects light in its proximity
