Abstract:

  • (x)trees is a socially interactive virtual forest generated from search words found in tweets and text messages. It is collaborative experiment in data visualization, video mapping and participatory art. Artist Agnes Chavez collaborates with programmers to create algorithmic drawings generated from data and projected in real time onto buildings or walls, exploring our connections to technology and nature. For ISEA2012, Chavez has collaborated with creative coder Alessandro Saccoia to create an immersive environment with multi-layered elements such as interactive branches, leaves, flowers and sounds collected from nature.
