Internet of Moss

While green roofs and walls have become common architectural features, ceiling tiles remain as undisturbed, under-utilized zones. This project augments standard Tbar drop ceilings tiles with moss culture for healthier and richer interiors. The tiles are wirelessly connected to their neighbors and linked to the Internet. They report individually on their status (moisture and pH) and together on ambient environmental conditions (temperature, ambient light, humidity, C02). It is envisioned that tiles in a given space can join other networked moss communities around the globe in an ecosystem of live correlated data whose feedback serves their resilience and sustainability. My role in this project was to link the moss tiles to the internet and display their live feeds on a web page that is now offline because the tiles have been dismantled.
