If you think the Fringe can offer you no more surprises, then wait until nightfall and head over to ‘Power Plant’. Using the verdant landscape of The Royal Botanical Gardens as a blank canvas to be worked upon, this multimedia installation almost defies description. Wandering from greenhouse to greenhouse like a visitor to some strange alien pod world, you are greeted by chirruping mechanical insects rustling in the bushes, electric sparks dancing amidst the branches of a tree, haunting voices emanating from torn dresses that are hung above a pond, and numerous other strange, playful and often downright spooky sound and light installations. This fusion of nature and technology is weird and wonderful, though a touch overpriced.
