WoodEar is a video and sound installation intended for large-scale HD projection in a public space. The images and sound in WoodEar are created from live streams of data and audio generated by various sensors attached to a tree.
"sunstars", one of several 'pieces' of Woodear, displays three animated 'sunstars', each tied to data from three luminosity sensors attached different branches of the tree. The sunstar's size, opacity, and rotational speed is driven by real-time changes in full-spectrum luminosity, infra-red, and lux as measured by the sensor. The sunstars hide/reveal video segments, filmed by Jennifer Lauren Smith, of the tree and its surroundings. Behind the sunstars, a series of 24 images mapped to time-of-day, gradually fade from one to the next over a 24-hour period.
