Zoecracy – methodology draft
The system of voting machine for the intersspecies elections is combined. The first part is the machine that will transform the EEG signals from the plant into the visual patterns saved as image. The images will be stored online. Second part will be the text to voice rss reader that will feed the plant with the news from around the world and local news for this particular position where the plants are grown. This part will let us stimulate the plants and with the usage of the first part measure their reaction for the news, situations, sentences, names. The heart of the system will be the database where the news needs to be interpreted in the semantic way. We will try to find the relations between the affects visualised by the second part with the semantic structure of the first part. Then it is possible we will find the patterns related with such emotions like the fear, anger, or hope and love. The stimulation of the plants by the rss will be also influenced by the specific language that human-centric media are creating. Specific language of hate and fear of the true world against the pleasure and gently finesse of the commercial products. The plants will be indoctrinated by the media and we will see how they affect for their bodies. I was thinking about separation each plant and measuring the reaction only by it. But I believe that the plants with the fungus, mold, moss, and many mold myceliums as also as animals are creating the kind of communications network using multichannel streamings in biosemiotic transspecies structure. Thus separation is like listening separated neron. We need to listen the whole structure like forest… So we need to go out of the gallery or transform gallery into forest like-place with multispecies inhabitants. Then in place like that the several plants can be taken as kind of anthennas for the whole systems act of will.
