Tree of Changes, by Yael Braha, is a large-scale interactive sculpture that encourages viewers to step to a microphone and make a wish. Their wish is then visualized rising up through the base and branches of the tree and becoming one of the leaves of the piece. Voice recognition and learning algorithms are used to send particular wish sentiments to individual areas of the tree.
The tree utilizes high density addressable LED strip, high brightness addressable pucks, and custom Max/MSP software.
Shown in 2015 at 111 Minna Gallery, Maker Faire 2015, Market Street Prototyping Faire.
