Yocahu is an interactive installation exploring the inherent life in trees, water as a catalyst for growth, and the way roots find underground streams through sound. As participants enter the space and become underground water sources, the tree's root system grows to interconnect each of them and circulate life, and their presence and movement directly affect a responsive music composition.
