Massless Suns and Dark Spheres

teamLab, 2022, Interactive Digital Installation, Endless, Sound: Hideaki Takahashi

Countless spheres of light and spheres of darkness.

Each sphere of light can be clearly perceived in the space as though the light is solidified, however, there is no material surface boundary. The spheres cannot be physically sensed, and the perception of the boundary between the artwork and the body is ambiguous.

When you concentrate on the suns, dark purple-blue spheres begin to appear, as though the darkness has been solidified.


If you try to touch a sphere of light, the sphere shines brightly and the surrounding spheres respond one after the other. When Tea in Spontaneous Order shines brightly, the surrounding spheres also respond one after the other.


The work cannot exist on its own - its existence is a phenomenon created by its environment. It does not exist in the physical space, but rather in our perceptions.

The work questions the notion of existence and what it means.
