an online application that blends software art & search tools to visualize participants' interests in prevalent streams of information, encouraging browsing & interaction between users in real time.

participants search for words which expand contextually through the use of a lexical database. English nouns, verbs, adjectives & adverbs are organized into floating synonym "seeds," each representing 1 underlying lexical concept. when participants "plant" their interests, each becomes a tree that "grows" over time. each organism's leaves are linked to related streaming RSS feeds, & by interacting with their own & other participants' trees, participants create a contextual timescape in which interests can be seen growing & changing within an environment that endures.

see also casual search & mnemomap search & hierarchical search & the still very aesthetic ecotonoha.
