an ambient visualization device that controls the watering & feeding of a tree depending on the energy usage & the monitoring of appliances, heating/cooling, and recycling habits. if the user is extremely efficient with energy use, the tree receives nutrients & water, while it will "poison & malnourish the tree, eventually killing it", otherwise.

reminds me of spore 1.1 & infotropism & growable data visualization. more eco-visualizations here.

What will these people think of next? If that doesn't make the public pay attention, maybe we could hook up an old person to an IV and slowly kill them if we don't 'mend our ways'. And if that doesn't work, maybe a whole family. If we're going to extremes ... let's not go half way.
