Ecologia is a machine that retrieves deforestation data from around the globe on internet. It then burns this data onto discs of wood.
Every circle is a year, and every year is divided in twelve different countries. Circles start at the center and grow towards outside to finally stop nowadays. The robot slowly burns the statistics into the tree's growth circles, making numbers and figures tangible in a physical space.
Built with Arduino + Flash + Processing
