The People's Garden
Description: The People’s Garden is an interactive digital artwork aimed at inspiring greater activity in caring for the environment. The artwork was produced in a joint project between the University of the Sunshine Coast’s Engage Research Lab and the Sunshine Coast Council. It shows a digital projection of a vine that only grows when someone sends a comment to its webpage or via SMS message sharing what they did for the environment that day. The comments make flowers appear and animals move across the artwork. Comments then rain down around the vine, so the public can read what their community is doing for the environment. The interactive artwork has been installed as a public exhibit at Noosa Junction, Queensland, and in galleries at Gympie and the University of the Sunshine Coast.
