Flowers and People, Transcending Boundaries - A Whole Year per Hour

teamLab, 2017, Interactive Digital Installation, Sound: Hideaki Takahashi

This artwork is in continuous change, over a period of one hour a seasonal year of flowers blossoms and scatters. Flowers are born, grow, bloom, and eventually scatter and die.The cycle of birth and death repeats itself in perpetuity. If people stay still more flowers are born, if people touch the flowers and walk around the flowers scatter all at once. This artwork is in continuous change, neither a prerecorded animation nor on loop. The work is rendered in real time by a computer program. The interaction between the viewer and the installation causes continuous change in the artwork; previous visual states can never be replicated, and will never reoccur. The artwork influences other works and flowers scatter due to the influence of other works.
