Tree of Ténéré Lights up and Responds to Activity

This large installation at Burning Man lit up with unique patterns in response to participants movement and biologic activity. Via Dezeen:

The leaves of an artificial tree at this year’s Burning Man festival illuminated with “light flocks” in response to visitors’ movements, heart beats and brain activity.

A team from New York, San Francisco and Amsterdam – led by artist Zachary Smith and including Dutch designers Studio Drift – created the Tree of Ténéré for the event, which took place in Nevada’s Black Rock Desert last week.

Three participants donned headsets that measured their movements, heart beats and brain activity. The algorithm translates this data into patterns that are visualised across the leaves of the artificial trees, which each held seven different coloured LEDs – totalling 175,000 all together.

“Their movements, heart beats and brain activity are measured and translated into the light swarms,” said the studio. “Once the people sync their movements, the individual flocks merge into one large swarm of light.”
