Japanese art collective teamLab have created an incredible floating garden installation featuring over 2,300 living flowers in bloom at the National Museum of Emerging Science and Innovation in Tokyo.

Speaking of the project, TeamLab said: “When a viewer gets close to this flower-filled space, the flowers close to the viewer rise upwards all at once, creating a hemispherical space with the viewer at its centre. In other words, although the whole space is filled with flowers, a hemispherical space is constantly being created with the viewer at its centre and the viewer is free to move around wherever they want. If many viewers get close to one another, the dome spaces link up to form one single space.”

Within the interactive floating flower garden viewers are immersed in flowers, and become completely at one with the garden itself. Find out more at teamLab. And make sure you watch the video below.
