The ITPlant is a physically manifested data visualisation of language used in emails.

Rest of You

Using words in an email as data, various metrics analyse the mood of the communication. When the language used is positive, the plant will grow and reflect a healthy state. Reversely, negative words will make the plant wilt. At the show, visitors will be able to email the ITPlant, using their smart phones, and see the impact their language has on the plant.
