Funky Forest by Theodore Watson

I can’t remember how I came across this, but I absolutely love it. This is the Funky Forest, created by Theodore Watson and Emily Gobeille, an an interactive environment where children grow trees with their body movements and divert water to the trees they create in order to keep them alive.

Screw kids, I want to run in there and create awesome trees and divert water! It’s almost like playing god with synthetic life, which I’m sure everyone lcan enjoy these days. I’m so impressed that it’s even possible to do things like this. If I was a kid, you’d literally have to drag me out of there to get me to leave. Although, as an adult you may have to do the same thing, anyway.
