A Musical Wall where Little People Live

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

This is a wall where little people live that plays sounds.


The little people run around inside the wall, oblivious to us. 


However, when things like mushrooms, trees, and long sticks of ice are attached to the wall, the little people notice them and jump on.


Depending on the type of object that has been attached to the wall, the little people will slide, jump, or climb on. Attach various kinds of objects to the wall, and the little people will play with delight.


Smiley face seeds come falling down from above. When these seeds hit the mushrooms and other things on the wall, different tones are played, depending on the type object they hit. Also, depending on the height of the things that have been attached to the wall, these tones will change in pitch.


Attach mushrooms and so on to different parts of the wall, and the wall will start playing music.

The Three Laws of Mechanics

The movement of things in this world can be explained based upon three laws.

  • The law of inertia

    As long as a separate external force is not exerted upon something, it will remain as it is.

  • For example, if you are on a stationary train and it suddenly starts to move, you try to remain stationary, so you are pulled backwards in relation to the direction in which the train is moving. If a moving train stops suddenly, you try to keep moving in the direction in which the train was moving, so you are pulled in the direction in which the train was moving.

  • The law of motion

    When a separate external force is exerted upon something, it starts to move in the direction of that new force. The amount of movement changes depending on the strength of the force applied and the weight of the thing. For example, strong force is necessary to push and try to move something heavy. If you try to bounce a heavy ball and a light ball, the light ball will bounce back more quickly even with the same amount of force.

  • The law of action and reaction

    When force is exerted upon something, the same amount of force is always returned in the opposite direction. For example, if you push a wall, the same amount of force as you exerted when you pushed it is returned by the wall.
