Resonating Trees – Forest of Tadasu at Shimogamo Shrine

teamLab, 2016, Interactive Digitized Nature, Endless, Sound: Hideaki Takahashi

The trees along the approach to the World Heritage Site of Shimogamo Shrine are brilliantly lit up. The light of each tree is autonomous, slowly breathing it shines brightly and then fades.

When visitors or animals come close to the trees, the light changes color and a tone color resonates out. Then, the light of the tree will resonate to the trees.

When a light resonates from the far end of the approach it signifies the presence of people or forest animals. Perhaps people will become more aware of the existence of other living things in the same space.
