One Tree ID - How to Become a Tree for Another Tree
A biopoetic and biochemical odour communication installation and experiment between an individual tree and humans.
by Agnes Meyer-Brandis, 2018/19
Intro: The project One Tree ID transforms the VOC * identity of a specific tree into a perfume that can then be applied to the human body. By applying it, a person can invisibly wear not just characteristics of the tree he/she is standing next to, but also use parts of its communication system and potentially have a conversation that - although invisible and inaudible by nature - might still take place on the biochemical level plants use for information exchange.
