The Royal Horticultural Society (RHS) welcomes more than 1.2 million visitors each year to four gardens across the UK, including Wisley in Surrey, one of the world’s great gardens. The RHS is also known for the Chelsea Flower Show held in London every year.
Andy recently exhibited a specially designed installation called The Digital Garden® at Wisley -
On display for the first time were large scale iPad drawings of garden flowers, one and two metres high and some drawn across two iPad canvases.
All ages could interact with the artworks and see iPad drawings come alive. Visitors watched how artworks were made, mark for mark, using their phones, tablets and augmented reality.
The Digital Garden® included artworks ‘planted’ around the garden amongst flower beds. Visitors could discover The Digital Garden® trail and use their smart phones or tablets to watch animated artworks of digital flowers growing where flowers were in bud or still to bloom.
