A Field of Lavender Nourished by Trump’s Tweets


This is a strange kind of IoT agriculture project:

A subterranean field of lavender, planted by Martin Roth in Midtown Manhattan, is nurtured by lights that are largely controlled by the President’s tweets.
The urban garden was installed by artist Martin Roth for his exhibition. It carries a literal title: In May 2017 I cultivated a piece of land in Midtown Manhattan nurtured by tweets
Using a Raspberry Pi, Roth has synced grow lights on the small room’s ceiling so the strength of their bulbs corresponds with the activities of nearly two dozen Twitter accounts.
