Resisting and Resonating Ovoids and Forest

teamLab, 2018, Interactive Digital Installation, Endless, Sound: Hideaki Takahashi

The resisting and resonating avoids placed around the forest, together with the trees of the forest, shine brightly. The light of the ovoids and the light of the trees are autonomous: they shines brightly and then fade slowly, as though they are breathing.


When the ovoid is pushed, the colour of the light it emits changes, and the tone unique to that color echoes out. The light that originated from that ovoid resonates out to other ovoids and trees nearby. The tone resonates out continuously in the same way as the light spreads throughout the ovoids and the trees.


If a wave of light comes from the other side of the forest, it signifies that there is another person in that location. As a result, people gain a heightened sense of awareness of the presence of other people in the same space.
