412-OCTAVIA is a physical installation and web platform designed for the Octopus Garden, a community garden in Pittsburgh. The installation enables users to hear community narratives and also to contribute their own individual narratives. This project leverages tangible, natural interactions that are currently happening in the garden and uses embedded technology to allow users, regardless of age, to engage in the community dialogue.
