=================================================
TYPOGRAPHIC TREE
An Interactive Installation by Digit.

Thurs 11 July - Fri 20 September 2002

Mon - Fri / 10:00am - 5:00pm

A small signpost invites visitors to sing to
mushrooms which sit on top of a tree stump. As
soon as a visitor begins, a tree begins to grow
Using nothing but the tone and volume of their
voice they can control every aspect of the tree's
growth. It's size, complexity, colour and even
the amount of flowers in bloom.

many awards. Here is a selection:
