Trasduttori are a series of sculptures composed of parasitic slide projectors. An Arduino-controlled circuit triggers the sequence of turning the lamps on and off via an SOS signal in morse code. A laboratory clamp, grafted onto the projector arm, holds a tillandsia plant between the two lenses. The plant, hit by light, generates a shadow projection on the wall that will follow its growth. The light sequences aim to evoke the electric fields that run through the plants. Weak hydrogen ion currents generated by the plants, employed for information exchange.
