The Oak Singing Tree for Autism will be the 14th in a series of murals made by over 8000 people from 15 countries – the first virtual experiment. Each participant will send in an image of his or her own photo, painting, sculpture, collage, drawing in response to the two questions above. With the help of Internet technology, the various works of art will be uploaded into a photo-mosaic an oak tree on the earth in space. The tree creation will be closely followed on Facebook, Twitter and other media.
