Botany of Sound is an ongoing research project by Dileo, immersing into the symbiotic connection between sound and the biotech realm. This creative exploration orchestrates a symphony, transcending conventional boundaries to form a contemporary bestiarum—a living ecosystem where music, technology, and nature converge. Utilizing diverse media, including sound compositions, photography, ready-made objects, and art installations, the research probes nature and futuristic, more-than-human landscapes through the lens of sound. Merging technology and art, the project introduces AI-generated prints and handmade sketches, crafting a syllabus of dystopian plants and flowers. Like nature providing oxygen, music and sound emerge as sources of well-being for the mind and emotions. The resulting book serves as an illustrated guide to these fictional flora, prompting contemplation on a sensory journey through a garden that harmonizes artificial and organic elements, stimulating both visual and auditory senses within the wonders of the natural world.
