Graffiti Nature - Living in the Ruins of a Bathhouse, Red List

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

An ecosystem is created by the creatures drawn by visitors.

Various creatures drawn by visitors live in the ruins of the bathhouse in Mifuneyama Park. The creatures you draw are somewhere in this ruins of the bathhouse. 

Animals are eaten by other animals, but if they do not eat, they will die and disappear. When the animals that you draw eat other animals, their numbers increase. Butterflies increase in places where there are flowers. All are part of one ecosystem.

 

If you step on salamanders too much, they will die. If you stand still, flowers will blossom around you. If you walk around, the flowers will scatter.

This work is based on the Red List and depicts local endangered wildlife.

Contexto de la Obra.

Ecosystem

  • More than 10 million living species are said to exist on Earth. Each and every one of these species lives while interacting with the others. Plants create nutrition from rain, soil, and the sunlight (photosynthesis). Animals eat those plants. These animals, in turn, are eaten by other animals. When animals die bacteria decompose their bodies, allowing plants to use them for nutrition.

  • All these living things and the habitat they live in is known as an “ecosystem”. Inside an ecosystem, everyone plays a specific role. Therefore, when an animal or plant greatly changes in number due to climate change or human intervention, the ecosystem’s balance is destroyed, thus affecting all that live inside it.
