Community Forest

Taking a break surrounded by foliage and greenery makes people feel serene and a world away from their busy activities. Each plant-lamp module indicates which plant is running dry, so that people know when to water them. The more healthy the plants, the brighter the lamps and the more alive the ‘forest’ appears to be. Caring for the plants together strengthens mutual trust and peer support among people. Data about the condition of the plants is communicated to other projects in the interactive environment.
