Tree

This virtual-reality project transforms you into a rainforest tree. With your arms as branches and your body as the trunk, you’ll experience the tree’s lifecycle.

This haptically enhanced virtual reality experience transforms you into a majestic rainforest tree. With your arms as branches and body as a trunk, you’ll experience the tree’s life from a seedling to its fullest form and witness its fate firsthand. With precisely controlled physical elements including vibration, heat, fan, and body haptics, the team created a fully immersive virtual reality storytelling tool, where the audience no longer watches but is transformed into a new identity, a giant tree in the Peruvian rainforest. Collaborating with The Rainforest Alliance, Tree gives each audience a numbered tree seed after the experience and connect them with the community. The team utilizes virtual, mixed and actual reality to tap into positive social change and explore the human experience.
