16 neighbors want a Tree of Changes on Market Street.

Selected
An interactive sculpture that captures, aggregates and visualizes thoughts, wishes and sentiments.

What?
The tree analyzes sentiments and speech in real-time and visualizes each wish by illuminating the tree as the wish travels to its destination. The Tree of Changes becomes more vibrant and alive with light and ambient sound throughout the day as wishes aggregate on the canopy.

Why?
It's time for changes: in people's lives and in the world. The Tree of Changes offers an opportunity for people to express their individual hopes and wishes for change, and at the same time, experience their community's wishes.

What’s Next?
We‘re looking forward to improve this prototype and add the following functionality:
• Sentiment analysis algorithm improvement
• Remote interaction (by texting or tweeting people’s
wishes)
• Wishes generate a real-time web-based word cloud
• Wishes generate a data-visualization map of
people’s sentiments over time (days, weeks,
and months)
• Every hour, all the recorded wishes will play back at
fast pace in a whirlwind of light and sound to acknowledge and celebrate all the individual and collective wishes for change.

Market Street Prototyping Festival
Thursday, April 9, 2015, 9:00am
Market Street between Embarcedero and Van Ness

An open call for creative ways to improve Market Street yielded hundreds of submissions from citizens and organizations. Fifty of these submissions were chosen to create rough models, or “prototypes”, that demonstrate how their idea would work. From April 9th - 11th, Market Street will come alive with these ideas. Its wide sidewalks will be filled with temporary installations ranging from performances spaces, relaxation zones, dynamic art pieces, and more.

Come and walk the festival route, check out the installations, and tell us what you think. A selection of these designs will then move from prototype to reality, as part of our city’s Better Market Street initiative.
