New Touch-Activated, Technicolor Greenhouse Takes Tokyo By Storm

New Touch-Activated, Technicolor Greenhouse Takes Tokyo By Storm

Updated 8 months ago

A greenhouse has just opened right in the middle of Tokyo. While urban farming is growing in popularity everywhere, this installation has a special twist.

The vegetables are "digital." Mashable reports that the website for art group PARTY's installation reads, "Tomatoes are violin, carrots are trumpet, cabbages are oboe, mini radishes are flute, sweet potatoes are piano, eggplants are harp, pumpkins are clarinet."

That doesn't clarify much as an explanation, so try watching the video before we proceed:

Basically, every vegetable corresponds to a sound, which in turn lights up the greenhouse, making it more of a rainbowhouse.

The #digivege space is drawing people in for its connection to farming and its incredible technicolor dreaminess:

Tonight we found the #digivege at Roppongi MidTown. You gently touch the vegetables and this happens. #tokyolife

Food is turned into a symphony of sound, color, and finally, taste.

Inside, 7 kinds of vegetables are growing. Leaves, roots, flowers, fruits. The shapes and colors of vegetables are their survival strategy. They are design. When you touch the vegetables, you can bathe in the designs enhanced with videos and sounds. 10/17 (Tue) ~ 11/5 (SUN), come touch the digital vegetables! We especially recommend the showtimes after sunset (first show 17:00 / final show 20:45). 🌈🍅🍆🥕🎃✨ #Roppingi #DesignTouch #Digital #Vegetables #LEDlights #Greenhouse #SoundDesign
