Mother Tree and Friends

In this installation, a majestic banyan tree in Esplanade Park is transformed into an interactive “Mother Tree” that invites viewers to communicate with an illuminated forest. The installation uses projections, LEDs, and sound to illustrate the importance of older trees to the forest ecosystem. “Friends” – the trees surrounding the mother tree – begin to respond, and the entire forest starts communicating through an underground mycorrhizal network.
