A collaboration with Fish McGill and Andrew Ringler, Enchanted Forest converted a section of Government Center into a magical experience through participants’ hands-on interaction. The forest contained multiple touch points: interactive networked birds, light play stations, and wooden xylophones. The installation highlights the role of trees as an essential part of our public health infrastructure.
The piece was on view during a night-time art festival called Immersion, part of HUBWeek, October 12–14, 2017.
