We returned to Longdendale Environmental Centre with our moss and soil samples, where we created miniature terrariums and ‘boundary detectors’. The boundary detectors are terrariums with built-in electronics that extract energy from the soil and moss. These Bio-Photo-Voltaic devices exploit the photosynthesis of the moss and the microbes in the soil to generate electricity [similar to an earth, or microbial batery]. The electricity powered a simple circuit which will allow us to hear the sound of light. in the next workshop, we will explore ways to use this to interact with invisible signals and sound.

More about the mosscillators soon…see the GUIDELine project here (boundary detectors)…
