Artificial forests and reefs made from reflexive materials and geotextiles.

Toronto-based design firm Philip Beesley Architect uses automated geotextiles, reflexive materials and acrylic tiles as raw materials for creating artificial plants and forests in his art works. The artificial ecosystems consist of a series of sensors and actuators to interact with the environment and humans.

Data Is Nature describes the sculptures:

The sculpture responds to human ‘occupation’ with air movement, produced by peristatic waves of motion within distributed fields of lightweight-pores. Arrays of capacitance-sensing whiskers and shape-memory alloy actuators are used to pull air and organic matter through the occupied space.
