“Cybernation” is an installation that controls plant growth. By using both phototropism and apogeotropism, plants can be shaped by human.
At first a path is drawn in a 3d software to represent the expected plant growth. Then the model is imported into the control program of the installation. Through a series of calculation, the motor connected to the plant is activated to spin at different angles, controlling the direction of sunlight and gravity. Eventually the plant grows into the shape as designed.
With calculation, the unpredictable life can be controlled, and the plant can be shaped.
