Flowers and People - Giant Lattice Mass

teamLab, 2019, Interactive Digitized City, Sound: Hideaki Takahashi

Flowers bloom and scatter for eternity on a giant latticed (15m high, 38m wide). A year of seasonal flowers bloom over the course of an hour, continuously scattering and changing.

Flowers are born, grow, bud, bloom, and eventually scatter, wither, and disappear. The flowers are in a continuous cycle of life and death, repeating forever.

When people come close and move around, the flowers scatter. But when people approach and remain still, the flowers bloom more abundantly than usual.

The artwork is rendered in real time by a computer program. It is neither a prerecorded animation nor on loop, it is continuously changing. Previous visual states can never be replicated and will never reoccur.
