Symbosis

The Idea

Symbiosis is a speculative short film using projection mapping and video effects. It explores a symbiotic relationship between data and cyborg plants. 

In 2028, scientists have developed a new data storage method that turns plants into data servers using extensive electronic roots and conductive soil without damaging them. And that leaves us to the questions: If your data lives in the plants around you and could die with them, would you feel the urge to take care of their lives? Would you still treat them as plants, the living creatures who are generous enough to spare their capacity to humans, or machines that would be disposed of once failure occurs?
