'Leaf: Autumn 2012' is a sculpture with mini thermal printers on the end of each branch that generates notes written by visitors.

Korean design studio HYBE has created a tree sculpture featuring leaves made of printed paper messages written by visitors that fall to the ground. As The Creators Project notes, Leaf: Autumn 2012 mimics the falling of autumn leaves and the messages are created on a touchscreen connected to mini thermal printers on the end of each branch. Every time a new message is written, an old one drops to the ground, piling up around the interactive installation.

One can sprout message by writing it or feel a delicate sense of communication by picking up one of the messages made by others. In this way Leaf: Autumn 2012 would like not only to generate interaction between the work and its audiences but to provide an experience of rapport among them.
