Peter Coffin  :  The Achemical Garden  :  Artist Garden    
Perfect If On , 2002

A greenhouse installed inside the gallery is a performance space in which musicians and sound artists communicate with plants. In this work, no attempt is made to validate the evidence that exists to support the phenomenon that plants respond to music, rather the performers are there simply to engage intuitively with the plants. A soundtrack designed for the plants' enjoyment plays when performers are not interacting directly with the installation.
