There's an old belief among farmers that on a quiet night, if you listen closely, you can hear the sound of corn growing.
A new exhibit at the Brooklyn Botanic Garden proves that theory to be true.
The exhibit, "Sonic Succulents: Plant Sounds and Vibrations," is the artist Adrienne Adar's vision come to life.
Adar is a sound artist based in Los Angeles. She's passionate about the natural world, and says her goal is to show people that plants aren't that different from us: they grow, breathe and even communicate in their own ways.
And so, back in May, she planted a patch of corn within the Brooklyn Botanic Garden and has surrounded it with large yellow megaphones that visitors can stick their heads inside to listen to what a growing stalk sounds like. It turns out the sound is almost extra-terrestrial.
