Tree

Institute History

Description

See and feel what it’s like to be one of the most essential building blocks of carbon-based life: a tree. This haptically enhanced virtual reality experience allows you to become a seed that is planted and grows into a full-sized tree in a majestic rain forest. With your arms as the branches and your body as the trunk, you experience the tree’s growth from a seedling to its fullest form, taking on its role in the forest and witnessing its fate firsthand.

As you use our Online Archives, please understand that the information presented from Festivals, Labs, and other activities is taken directly from official publications from each year. While this information is limited and doesn't necessarily represent the full list of participants (e.g. actors and crew), it is the list given to us by the main film/play/project contact at the time, based on the space restrictions of our publications. Each entry in the Online Archives is meant as a historical record of a particular film, play, or project at the time of its involvement with Sundance Institute. For this reason, we can only amend an entry if a name is misspelled, or if the entry does not correctly reflect the original publication.
