Abstract/Summary The Meet Eater is a physical computing project which explores how social networks can be used to convey anthropomorphic qualities of an inanimate object. The installation consists of a real garden of plants with a synthetic ecosystem that automatically triggers a water pump when its 'social needs' are being sustained on its own Facebook page.
