An eight minute video of Plein Air installed with nine Scottish native trees at the Glasgow Botanic Gardens in Sept 2017. Here we are listening to data streaming from the leaf of a small rowan tree at the end of the day on Friday 21 September. Photosynthesis is a bit flat while transpiration is very active. The project in its final form is supported by an R&D grant from Creative Scotland, the project was developed with the support of Glasgow Sculpture Studios. Developed over a period of nine years it builds on Reiko Goto's original efforts on her PhD project seeking empathic relationship with more than human others, such as trees.
