FLUTTER OF BUTTERFLIES BEYOND BORDERS BY TEAMLAB TAKE OVER LONDON’S SAATCHI GALLERY
Japanese art collective teamLab continue their impressive digital interactive artwork with a take over of London’s Saatchi Gallery for the START Art Fair this September. The exhibition, titled Flutter Of Butterflies Beyond Borders sees a mirrored walkway depict the seasonal course of flowers over a year; a moving image of growth and decay that directly reacts to viewer’s activity.
Attendees’ presence will affect their cycle and whether they wither, die, spring up and blossom. Ultimately, exploring the boundary between nature and human behaviour. The gallery space sees butterflies flying across its walls, onto the floral imagery that looks at art being released from its constraints by the digital domain.
The exhibition sees the group continuing their creation of stunning digital projections that eliminate the borders of architecture through an array of frequently changing images.
Created in real-time by a computer programme, the visuals of the winged insects are not pre-recorded or played back, but continuously changing, never to be repeated.
The installation includes the collectives previous ‘Ever Blossoming Life II – Dark’ and ‘Flowers and People, Cannot be Controlled but Live Together – A Whole Year per Hour Dark’, all three overlaid onto one another to create an all-encompassing, immersive experience of movement and colour.
