Resonating Botanical Garden

teamLab, 2017, Interactive Digitized Nature, Sound: Hideaki Takahashi

Rare plants shine brightly in the botanical garden. Each plant’s light is autonomous, shining brightly and then fading  as if it’s breathing.


As people pass nearby, the light of the plants changes color, and a tone specific to that color resonates out .  The light of an individual plant spreads radially to the neighboring plants. In the same way that the light is transmitted between plants, the tone also propagates through each plant, spreading continuously.


If light resonates out from deep within, it means that there is someone over there. Perhaps people will become more aware than usual of the presence of other people in the same space.
