Autogenerative environment of computer processed plants similar to a wild grass, this garden suggests both visual poetry and clinical hygiene. Sound Samples are by Alva Noto (Raster-Noton).
In their myriad configurations, the shapes of "Minimal Garden" are oddly evocative of those forms hymned by Walt Whitman in his celebrated "Leaves of Grass" - symbols of the diversity of nature, of the many "tongues" of man, of the myriad voices of democracy. The poet wrote:
I loafe and invite my soul,
I lean and loafe at my ease observing a spear
of summer grass...
And he later compares its myriad shapes to hieroglyphs which the poet seeks to translate. David Galloway (excerpt).
