Tree Holes / Service design

Tree Holes
Tree Holes

We have a lot of secrets that we don't want to tell others. But we often want to find places to talk. In general, we call these places "tree holes". We can only write these stories for ourselves, but sometimes we prefer these stories to be passed on to more people anonymously. The product is placed in public space. When people have secrets, they enter this closed space. There are three ways to share your own story, including speaking directly, writing on paper, and using phone. Film or literary work practitioners can see what you want to share and choose the stories they want to adapt . Correspondingly, the selected person will get the pay.
