About Voice of Nature: Using the real time data coming from a living tree in order to talk about the urgency of climate change, ‘Voice of Nature’ aims to provoke a new relationship with nature surrounding us.
Using environmental sensors, 1600 real time data points were generated to create a data visualization that shows how the tree was “feeling” about environmental changes happening around it.
