Flutter of Butterflies Beyond Borders, Transcending Space - Seated Contemplation, Continuous Small Universe

teamLab, 2019, Digital Installation, Endless, Sound: Hideaki Takahashi

This work is to be viewed while sitting at a specified position in the space.


The artwork begins when the Flutter of Butterflies Beyond Borders, Ephemeral Life enter the Continuous Small Universe. If other works enter the space, the Flutter of Butterflies Beyond Borders, Ephemeral Life leaves.


The butterflies that enter this space are born from visitors’ touch in the Butterfly House as part of the Flutter of Butterflies Beyond Borders, Ephemeral Life. They transcend the concept of frames, removing the boundaries between artwork spaces as they seamlessly fly between works.


The artwork is not a pre-recorded image that is played back; it is created by a computer program that continuously renders the artwork in real time. As a whole, it is continuously changing, and previous visual states are never replicated. The picture at this moment can never be seen again.
