Walk, Walk, Walk - Tadasu Forest at Shimogamo Shrine

teamLab, 2019, Digital Installation, Endless, Sound: Hideaki Takahashi, Voices: Yutaka Fukuoka, Yumiko Tanaka

A group of anonymous and diverse figures walk along the Izumigawa River as it flows through Tadasu Forest.


People can stay with these figures or leave them, and watch as they continue.


The Zen expression “Hoho kore dojo” says every step is the place to learn. The figures of the artwork walk endlessly while confronting new situations. Walking after the figures or confronting new figures one after another, people also make choices along their own path.


The artwork is not a pre-recorded image that is played back: it is created by a computer program that continuously renders the work in real time. The interaction between people and the installation causes continuous change in the artwork: previous visual states can never be replicated, and will never reoccur. The picture at this moment can never be seen again.
