Publicity Plant: growing plants through social media attention

Sander Veenhof designed an interactive greenhouse in which a bouquet of ‘graduation flowers’ is growing, depending on your help! A greenhouse control system converts all online publicity into plant growth by switching on the grow-lights when you blog or Twitter about it, upload a photo at Flickr, or bookmark ‘puplicityplant’ on Delicious. Below you can watch the plants grow in realtime. The project is a graduation project for the Gerrit Rietveld art academy in Amsterdam.
