Local Nature Lab


BEHOLD: Trees, A Visual Exploration is a proposed artistic and educational augmented reality experience that visualizes the complex natural systems of iconic urban trees and their interrelationship with their immediate physical environment. Uniting science and technology with art, BEHOLD will present a living tree and its processes as a compelling visualization of live ecological data – the tree’s ‘vitals’. Beginning at the foot of the oldest tree in Manhattan, the English elm in Washington Square Park, one will be able to use AR smartphone technology in-situ, in the classroom, or anywhere, to see the magnified internal systems at work by looking up into the branches, through the trunk and down into the roots.
