Resonating Botanical Garden

teamLab, 2017, Interactive Digitized Nature, Sound: Hideaki Takahashi

Rare plants are lit up brightly in the botanical garden. Each plant’s light is autonomous, shining brightly and then fading.


When people pass by or approach a plant, the color of the light changes and a new color resonates out. Then, the light of that plant radiates out and is transmitted to nearby plants. The propagated light of the plants will again resonate, and the color will continue to resonate to nearby plants.


When a light resonates from deep within the Botanical Garden, it signifies the presence of people. Perhaps people will become more aware of the existence of other living things in the space they share.
