An interactive sketch that illustrates the positive correlation between positivity and progress.

Kennedy Cambra-Cho


This is an interactive installation that depicts the relationship between positivity and progress using the speech library and sentiment analysis.Growth and progress are reflected in each additional branch added to the tree.

The p5 sketch will depict a seedling that will progress or regress depending on the users’ input. Using the built in microphone, users are able to talk to the budding seedling. If the tree intakes words deemed positive, the seedling will continue to grow. However, if only negative terms are registered the tree's growth will halt and stall.
