Pu Gong Ying Tu is an interactive painting of a dandelion field. When you blow on the white puffs, the seeds disperse and generate new flowers. These flowers begin as yellow dandelions, but after a few moments bloom into responsive white seed puffs.
The piece is part of a series called Programmable Paintings, which blend traditional elements of painting–such as color, texture, composition–with the intelligence and interactivity of electronics and computation.
This work is inspired by Jessie Thompson and Zachory Berta’s:
When is a Flower Not a Weed?
