WoodEar is a video and sound installation designed for large-scale presentation in a public space or gallery. It uses live data and audio streams from sensors embedded in a tree to generate real-time content. Created by composer Peter Traub in collaboration with Jennifer Lauren Smith (photo/videography, exhibition design) and choreographer Katie Schetlick (performance direction), the piece involves four projections, a live performance, and sound installation in addition to an interactive computer application.
