Typographic Tree. "A small signpost invites users to sing to the mushrooms which sit on top of a 5' 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 trees growth. It's size, complexity, colour and even the amount of flowers in bloom." I'm not sure why it's 'typographic,' but still very pretty.

What impresses me about the thing is that it doesn't look like line noise, which is what seems to occur with most generative art. Can't wait to play with the on-line version.

Reminds me of the flowers from uncontrol, only refined and more complex.

Once I controlled my usual reflex of shutting down any popup window before it loads, I found this idea absorbing and etherally beautiful. Definitely one of those posts that demands a follow-up when it becomes available online.
