Can plants communicate? What would they say if they could speak?

Discover the hidden language of plants as you explore Celestial Gardens in this Adelaide Fringe event.

Celestial Gardens features a large-scale interactive plant music installation. With a chorus of 10 singing plants, it utilises technology to translate biodata to music.

Housed in the awe-inspiring venue of the Bicentennial Conservatory, the experiential installation aims to assist in starting a dialogue necessary to re-establish a balanced relationship between humanity and the greater environment by giving nature the voice to speak.

Celestial Gardens is a transcendent experience of deep listening and reconnection. You will wander through the rainforest communicating with the plants as:

  • they respond to you through movement and touch
  • you journey through pathways of light, vivid colour, aural art and
  • you explore the enchanted rainforest as it sings a symphony of super-nature.

This exciting event also hosts an exclusive line-up of special guest artists presenting their work, including the award-winning virtual reality fairy tale Otanical by the celebrated art-technology innovators at Felicity Arts.

Be rejuvenated as you bathe in the healing vibes of nature, allowing the plants to give you your own unique sound bath experience.
