T2T Tree to Tree
T2T is a new system for remote communication created by Olga Kisseleva in addition to the T2N protocol. T2T serves as the main technical base for several EDEN projects. The sensors T2T receive the data, measure and process the information, and transmit it to the local antennas. They send the signals to the Network.
The “conversation“ between the trees is “created” by the local Network using the LoRA protocol. This junction represents the intersection of the work of the artists, linguists, and botanists who interpret the “speech” of the trees. As soon as this transcription is completed, it is transmitted to the global network. The work becomes a device for transmitting and displaying “messages“ of trees. The sensors used by O. Kisseleva receive the data, measure and process the information, and transmit it to the antennae – which, in turn, send the signals from tree to tree trough the Network.
T2T gives “voice” to the trees and creates a digital visualization of the invisible dialogue – a special stream of information circulating among the trees, which constitute an interlinked set of objects. It touches upon global ecological challenges and brings “digital ecology” to life. The project links the electronic and the biological networks in real time, and creates an original poetic and visual conception of biological communication, giving great scope to the audience’s ability to “listen” to nature. Nature is not exploited or destroyed for the sake of the project – au contraire, it emerges as a subject that ought to be listened to and taken care of.
