This work is part of the overall project Herbal Ghetto. It developed in several modules, since 2008, based on the four elements. Vegetal Ballet, is an installation which puts two self-sufficient plants. One becomes orchestra conductor while the other carries out a ballet, offering visitors a moment of contemplation and questioning. In the face of global warming, impoverishment of natural resources, and Man’s impact on his environment, Cédric Sabato proposes an interactive “organic” installation. It allows each to create a special relationship with nature, and to highly reflect upon machine/Man’s relation to the environment.
The playing of music induces a “vegetable ballet”, intended to place the spectator in position of contemplation and communication with a nature that is endowed with intelligence and sensibility…a predisposition wrongly assumed as a human trait.
