(x)trees: Dynamically generating forest of trees created by SMS and Tweets from the audience

(x)trees is projected in real time on to buildings and large spaces, exploring messaging and mobile devices as a way to create a participatory experience around the theme of protecting our natural resources, and our relationship to communication technology. By integrating data mining from social networks and text messaging, people participate in the creation of the branches to create a virtual interactive forest of dynamically generating trees.  The audience sends a tweet or text message and sees their message appear on the wall with a branch. The key word is chosen in relation to the event i.e. climate change.
