Spirits of the Flowers

teamLab, 2018, Digital Installation

Throughout a year, with the passing of time flowers bloom and change.

The flowers bud, grow, and blossom before their petals begin to wither and eventually fade away. The cycle of growth and decay repeats itself in perpetuity. When people touch the flowers they move and their flowers scatter.


The flowers are affected by other artworks, due to the influence of other works they scatter their petals. For example when the figures from Walk, Walk, Walk pass by they scatter more frequently, or they obscure parts of other artwork worlds.

The work is rendered in real time by a computer program, it is neither a prerecorded nor imagery on loop. Previous states will never be repeated and can never be seen again.
