The Tree of Changes is an interactive sculpture that captures, aggregates and visualizes the individual and cumulative thoughts, wishes and sentiments of people.

Commissioned and partially funded by Yerba Buena Center for the Arts and the City of San Francisco for the Market Street Prototyping Festival 2015.

Installed in April 2015 at the Embarcadero, San Francisco and in May 2015 at Bay Area’s Maker Faire.
