Data Garden is back for another year of celebrating plants, music and technology in the garden, Bartram’s Garden that is. And I-SITE, a fan of all these components is proud to be sponsoring the second annual event!

Mark your calendar for Sunday, October 14th when The Switched –On Garden 002 sets up at the oldest surviving botanic garden in North America. Participants will have the opportunity to wander the garden and connect with their natural environment through live music, performance and sculpture that blurs the distinction between biological and digital worlds.

I-SITE definitely plans to attend after deciding to sponsor the event and working hard to build the Data Garden website, which recently won the IMA Outstanding Achievement Award in the category of ‘Music.’

The Outstanding Achievement award is the second highest honor bestowed by IMA- The Interactive Media Awards and an extremely challenging award to win.  It proves that the site reached excellence in planning, execution and overall professionalism.

View the award winning website here and check back for the list of artists performing at this year’s event at the end of the month. To invite friends and RSVP, head over to the Data Garden Facebook event.
