In September 2019 at the beginning of the project Dr Richard Glover headed to Zurich to interview Marcus Maeder and Roman Zweifel about their work Treelab that was a STARTS Prize honoury mention in 2007.

The goal of this artistic-scientific􏰀c research project was to connect sounds that occur in trees with ecophysiological process and investigate and render processes in plants that are not noticeable to humans. The acoustic emissions of a tree were recorded with special acoustic sensors, and translated into sounds and music. The recordings and soni􏰀ed measurements were simple- mented in a number of different media art installations under the preamble “treelab“,which at the same time served as a research environment, in order to display and examine the tempora land spatial connections between plant sounds.
