Comb the Tree

, Siyuan Zan, Tianjun Wang

Using projection mapping and music interaction to make human and tree communicate with each other



For the music part,the surface of the tree looks very rhythmic, with tracks and irregular block pattern. We want to use the data collected from the surface pattern of the tree to compose the music played when combing the tree. For the projection part, the surface of the tree reminds me of the blood vessels under the skin or the wrinkles on the face.By using noise graphic generated in p5 and communicated with distance sensor,the projection interacted with the comb when someone combing the tree. In this way, the one who comb could feel like they were combing a lively texture and communication with the tree.
