Pond Battery is a continuation of Biotricity artscience research project by RIXC. Six “bacteria cells” were installed in the pond of Botanical Garden of University of Latvia in Riga. Live web-cam images and continuous measurement of bacteria electricity fluctuations were delivered live on the Internet, thus making audible and visible the invisible activity of nature. Collected data from the seven month long observation is now transformed into visualized data landscapes, video and sound composition.
