Concrete and Abstract - Between Hachiman Shrine and the Five-Story Pagoda

teamLab, 2021, Interactive Digital Nature, Sound: Hideaki Takahashi

This artwork is located in between the Hachiman Shrine and the Five-Story Pagoda, which has been standing there since before Toji was built.

When people stop inside the artwork space, a new set of lines is born and spreads across the space.
The combination of the lines turns the trees into flattened layers.

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 artwork at this moment can never be seen again.
