An interactive digital installation artwork that allows viewers to walk around freely through a space surrounded by images on the floor and in every direction, helping them experience a visual display of the forces of magnetism, which are normally invisible to the naked eye. The artwork is divided into three worlds: Space, Earth, and Electrons. When viewers touch the projected floating objects (earth, planets, aurora, and free electrons), they are taken to that world. ・Space Touch the sun or planets to see magnetic forces depicted through light, as they stream out from the sun and planets, connecting and disconnecting from each other. Touch those connecting paths and you will see them change. ・Earth Touch the aurora to see it shimmer and change into a variety of colors. ・Electrons Electronics Mode Touch the free electrons and see electricity pass through the grid pattern created by the chemical bonds between the electrons. Touch the free electrons more than once and see electricity pass all at once through the grid pattern created by the chemical bonds, making the grid shine brightly. Spintronics Mode Touch the free electrons to change the rotation direction and orientation and see the electricity travel further away. Depending on the direction, electricity may travel fast or slowly. This artwork depicts the nature and direction of electrons. The artwork is rendered in real time by a computer program; it does not use pre-recorded animations. It changes based on the viewer's' position and behavior, so that previous visual states as a whole can never be replicated.
