Marije Baalman (Netherlands) studied Applied Physics at the Technical University in Delft and graduated in February 2002 on the topic of Perceptual Acoustics. In 2001/2002 she followed the Sonology Course at the Royal Conservatory in The Hague. She completed her Ph.D. on Wave Field Synthesis and electro-acoustic music in 2007 at the Electronic Studio of the Technical University of Berlin. Between 2007 and 2010 she was a post-doctoral researcher in Computation Arts at Concordia University in Montreal.
Sonobotanic models: Periperceptoida Triquetrus Nutandis and - Dependis (2010)
The scientific field of Predictive Sonobotanics attempts to create models of sonobotanic plants with the aim of predicting their behavior and to gain a deeper understanding of the subtleties in sonobotanic plant behaviour. In this exhibition models of the Periperceptoida Triquetrus Nutandis and the Periperceptoida Triquetrus Dependis are presented.
The models make use modern technology: sensors measure environmental characteristics, such as light, temperature, and humidity; these data are used in computational models implemented in SuperCollider; the result is then auralised via the loudspeakers inside the physical model.
