Silent Dialogues expedition

Description

Have you ever wondered how plants communicate? We invite you to join a quest to probe the underground communication networks between plants, fungi and other microorganisms. After a week of building an experimental listening apparatus that sonifies plant and mushroom signalling for human ears, Martin Howse and FoAM venture into the wilderness of Gent, eavesdropping on silent vegetal dialogues. They will attempt to observe, collect and perhaps even participate in plant communication. Join the team in their fieldwork and experience electrochemical signals emanating from the deep silence under your feet.  We start in the Snoepwinkel and then head into the City or some of Ghent's parks.
