Switched-On Garden 002

October 14, 2012 @ 9:00 am - 3:00 pm

Join Philly-based music label, Data Garden, at Bartram’s Garden for an interactive exhibition exploring the relationship between plants, music and technology. Participants will have the opportunity to wander the Garden and connect with their natural environment through live music, performance and sculpture that blurs the distinction between biological and digital worlds. The 2012 line-up of artists includes Spaceship Aloha, King Britt, Steven Litt, duo Leslie Zacharkow and Kyle Stetz, Sam Cusumano, and more!

Free and open to the public.

About Data Garden: Data Garden is a journal, record label and events producer encouraging the discovery of electronic music through the windows of history, science and community. We research the heritage of primitive electronic art and explore the synthesis of biological and digital technologies as a channel of human expression. Data Garden creates a forum where new connections are made.
