This Exquisite Forest is a collaborative storytelling tool. Inspired by the Surrealist drawing game of “exquisite corpse,” the site allows anyone to start an animation tree by drawing a series of short frames — a “seed” — or add on to an existing tree. The project, from Google’s Data Arts team, is also temporarily installed in the Tate Modern in London.
Check out some popular trees here and here and here.

Roof-mounted sensors translate light, rain, wind and thunder inputs to generate an impromptu musical score.
Drawing its sounds directly from the elements, no day’s synthesizer-style music is the same — who knew lightning could sound like reverb and that moonlight purrs?
