Creative Technology from past years created the concept of an interactive tree. Our task was to make it more interactive, creative and more tree-like.
We redid the design of the tree and implemented a brainstorm concept.

We build a scaled prototype tree version with LED flowers. People applied colored paper (with written words/quotes/ideas on it) inside this tree.
Inside the tree a webcam detects the color and makes the flowers attached to the tree produce the same colored light.
The tree also reacts when people come near (detection sensors), playing nature sounds. Because we also wanted to make it more approachable we designed seats into the tree.

My role in this group project was designer.
