HISTREE

Histree is a project that combines VR with wearable technology to explore the relationship between human being and other natural objects, as well as think about the position of human being in this world.

Urban city is made by human beings and for human beings. However, there are also a lot of other natural objects shared this experience with us. So how does this dynamic urban history look like from other's perspective, such as a tree. It can "see" the colors, feel the touch and "smell" some chemical materials. But the way it use to feel this world and the things it cares are totally different from us. Therefore, is it possible to create a bridge between human and tree to let users feel in a tree's way of the history between 1918 to 1938 and further think about the concept of "anti-anthropocentrism"?

 

These are the documentation of the work and defense presentation.
