Ryuichi Sakamoto’s installation ‘Forest Symphony‘ is an art project he conceived following the Great Tohoku Earthquake. Aiming to direct our attention to trees and forests as “supporting pillars of human living environments.”

Along with the YCAM InterLab team, a sensor device was created for measuring the biopotential of trees and collecting the measured data on a server via the network. The device is installed on trees around the world to measure their bioelectric data, which Sakamoto used to create a “symphony” played by the natural cycles, visualising the changing biopotential and information of the different environments.

The elements are spatially integrated into a “forest-like environment” in the form of a sound installation that continuously transforms in response to seasonal and climatic changes. You can check out Sakamoto’s ‘Forest Symphony’ in the video below:
