GIANT BUBBLE CHANGES COLOR AND SHAPE AS VISITORS WALK THROUGH

Toyko-based design studio Team Lab built a labyrinth of floating colors at the Hong Kong Arts Centre in China. This hypnotic display of chroma, sound and luminescence, entitled ”Homogenizing and Transforming World,“ dictates the interior space of the center in sheer wonder, and envelopes visiting admirers in a world of mesmerizing glowing globes.
Suspended in the air and hovering above the floor, the giant orbs of color, in reaction to human contact and subtle movements, will change in color and take on new characteristics.

To coordinate the motion responses, Team Lab set up a wireless connection that binds the floating orbs together, essentially creating an intricate network of exaggerated paper lanterns.
As part of the exhibit Distilling Sense: A Journey Through Art and Technology in Asia, this surreal, interactive installation is an example of how modern day information bounces and spreads back and forth between people and objects. Open until January 14th, this fascinating exhibit welcomes anyone with an appreciation for contemporary art.

For a taste of this imaginative project, take a look at the video below.

luminous colored spheres by teamlab respond to human touch

tokyo-based team lab invite visitors to the hong kong arts centre, china into a hypnotic field of chroma, sound, and luminescence. the maze of giant orbs suspended from the ceiling and hovering above the floor that make up ‘homogenizing and transforming world’ are technologically infused so that simple human contact has the capability of changing the color of their exterior skin. the individual balls floating in the air communicate with each other through a wireless connection, morphing in hue when they bump into things, are touched by people, or receive a shock. the reaction of the numerous adjacent spheres is to mutate their saturation, too, through information sent by the original glowing globe. team lab equates their interconnectivity with the growing interaction of the web saying, ‘the internet has spread throughout the world. individuals are connected to closely related people, and information spreads back and forth freely between them.’ the artwork can currently be seen — and experienced — from now until january 14th, 2014 as part of the exhibit ‘distilling senses: a journey through art and technology in asian contemporary art’.
