Landscapes do not possess any intrinsic perceptual qualities, these are generated by experience in living beings.
Touchscaping is an intra-active living sculpture, in which the artist interacts with a nest of earthworms. A system of sensors transfers the touch from this interaction into sound and visuals.

Division between models of an organism & its environment - Mĕch & Prusinkiewicz (1996)
On the age of computation in the epoch of humankind:
We live in a moment of profound transitions caused by the accelerating dynamics of planetary change. The digital transformation is an important driver of this dynamics which we need to better understand.
Tentacle Flora - Robotic Sculpture (2018): http://nakayasu.com/?portfolio=tentacle-flora
The Tentacle Flora is a robotic sculpture inspired by a vision of a colony of the sea anemone growing on the coral. A shape-memory alloy actuator is used as tentacles and is composed of a BioMetal Fiber such that it can bend in three directions. The top of the actuator glows softly mimicking a bioluminescent organism using a full colored LED. The Tentacle Flora induces the beauty, wonder, and existence of living sea anemones in the depths of the ocean.
