We've been constructing a little garden for the coo for our One Bit Experience Site. The plants were made by gluing a piece of aluminum foil (Camile recycles aluminum foil from when she bakes) and wire together, then covering it with tape and pieces of carefully cut paper painted with acrylics.
Each plant was influenced by our favorite plants. For example, the blue one is Camile's favorite flower as a child, the lupine. And the green, leafy plants are reminiscent of the pumpkin and sunflower seeds she used to grow in her garden. We'll be photographing these models soon to be computerized into bits and bytes.
We decided to "plant" our creations in the soil in the garden, the local "wildlife" stopped by. The little guy stayed around for a while and even attempted to chomp the green paper leaves.
