/'ga:d(ә)n/ - GARDEN
Communication technology should belong to all of us. Spaces where you meet, talk, have fun, but also where you argue, get upset, and makeup. Private companies should not own our living rooms and bedrooms.
The GARDEN is a place to listen to acoustic spheres in a virtual environment. It is also an abstract interactive music composition tool. Just turn the roses with your mouse and the sound will be shaped. All gardens in all browsers will move accordingly, which creates an overall composition to everyone participating.
The garden is an artistic interpretation and representation of MAKE.SPACE, a multifunctional and generative platform that can be used as a space for collaboration, cooperation and communication. The substrate of the platform has been infused with Aza Raskin and Jens Vetter.
