Watch SakuraVIX here.

The VIX, sometimes called the 'fear index' is a measurement of stock market volatility. This animation is made with Paper.js, and uses Google Finance data to find the current level of fear and then determines how many petals should appear on the tree. As fear increases, fewer petals appear on the tree.

Interestingly, we seem to be living in a moment where the VIX is behaving strangely.
