Mileece has spent many years studying sound design. In the process, she created a garden, the Tree Weaver, that produces acoustic sound through currents and wave frequencies. The sound produced by the movement of the hands utilises GSR (Galvanic Skin Response) while the human interactive sections use biosensors connected to a bigger system that chooses sound based upon factors such as firmness and location of the touch. This project really inspired me since Mileece took something artificial, the sound design creation process, and perfectly blended it with nature and everyday life to enhance the features of these plants inside the garden and really immerse those who visit. There are times when I believe that technology could not emulate sound produced by humans or actual instruments, but Mileece integrated the technology in such a natural way that it seems real.
