distherbed communicates the relationship between two plant-friends who feel separation anxiety.

From their home on the windowsill, they overlook the kitchen kingdom. They love their lives and each other – so much they are distressed when one is taken away, even for a moment.

distherbed is a microproject that explores the personification of inanimate objects. An Arduino, LEDs, and a servomotor were used to bring the plants to life.
