Auger-Loizeau / Digitised Banality

Electronic Leaf: A wireless communications device is attached to a branch of a tree whilst in leaf, a magnet an led and a battery are connected to the leaf. When the leaf falls the magnetic switch is triggered and the user is informed by a mobile telephone message that the leaf has fallen. The led is activated so that the user may distinguish the leaf should it lands in a pile or blow away.
This technological intervention between user and the leaf provides a space where the user through contemplating on the demise of the leaf might find pleasure in celebrating other ‘banalities’.
