A work of art by Naziha Mestaoui, giving you the possibility to plant a virtual tree that will grow at the rhythm of your heartbeat. The tree will then grow in reality planted in one of 5 reforestation programs around the world, which offers long-term social and environmental results.
1 Heart 1 Tree creates a forest of light on the most famous monuments around the world, and each virtual tree will also grow, using real-time, 3-D mapping to project their tree on the monument, generating a virtual forest at night.
« 1 Heart 1 Tree » the monumental artwork was successfully launched in Paris as part of the United Nations COP21, adorning the Eiffel Tower with beautiful virtual trees for 5 nights in a row. In light of this success, « 1 Heart 1 Tree » will begin an international tour in cities across the world to achieve global impact.
1,3 million people witnessed the Paris event thanks to live streaming technology; the event was also relayed by 135 TV stations around the globe. As a result, 55.000 real trees were planted through reforestation programs, demonstrating that the collaborative monumental artwork achieved its goal of raising citizen engagement and global awareness for the deforestation challenge.
