29. The Giggle Tree 

Hannah Walker, Auckland Tāmaki Makaurau

Laughter is a fundamental aspect of human communication. It can relax us, reduce stress, boost our immune system and improve social bonding. One person’s giggle can trigger the laughter in others resulting in a shared experience of positivity.

The Giggle Tree acts as a catalyst (or cackle-ist) to plant the seed of amusement, to grow and spread laughter as an emotional contagion, to create a sense of unity and connection among people, and to cultivate a forest of light-hearted laughter.
