Generation Tour: The Tree, The Caterpillar and The Butterfly by Aether & Hemera

Enter an enchanting interactive garden inspired by nature and state-of-the art technology.

Using Xbox Kinect technology, see how your movements affect a multi-coloured field of butterflies and listen for the melodic sounds of the birdhouses as they respond to your presence. Use a magic watering can to make a ‘pea tree’ grow. And can you find the caterpillar before it transforms into a butterfly?

Created by artists Aether & Hemera, The Tree, the Caterpillar and the Butterfly combines the power of art, technology and nature to create a magical, memorable experience for all ages to enjoy.

Aether & Hemera are artists, programmers and designers who delight in creating  interactive art installations that encourage playfulness and wonder. They mix lighting technologies and digital media to craft artworks that generate a sense of joy in everyone, across all ages.
