Spatial Calligraphy and Carp on the Castle Walls, Reversible Rotation - Hiroshima Castle Ruins

teamLab, 2019, Digital Installation, Sound: Hideaki Takahashi

Every aspect of the Spatial Calligraphy written on the castle walls rotates in the same direction, but depending on perception, it can appear to be rotating clockwise or counterclockwise.


Spatial Calligraphy offers a contemporary interpretation of traditional Japanese sho (calligraphy) in an abstract space. The artwork reconstructs Japanese sho in three-dimensional space and expresses the depth, speed and power of the brush stroke.
