Proliferating Immense Life

teamLab, 2020, Interactive Digital Installation, Sound: Hideaki Takahashi

The seasons change gradually across the installation space. Flowers blossom according to the changing seasons, and the place where they grow gradually moves across the space. The flowers’ cycle of growth repeats itself in perpetuity.  When too many flowers grow, they scatter and fade all at once.
When people touch them, the flower petals scatter and fall away.

The artwork is not a pre-recorded image that is played back: it is created by a computer program that continuously renders the work in real time. The interaction between people and the installation causes continuous change in the artwork: previous visual states can never be replicated, and will never reoccur. The picture at this moment can never be seen again.
