Continuous Life and Death at the Now of Eternity

teamLab, 2017, Digital Work, 9 channels, Endless

Flowers are eternally repeating the process of life and death.

The flowers that bloom change daily along with the real-time seasons. As the sun rises where the artwork is located, the world of the artwork becomes brighter, and as the sun sets, it becomes darker.

The real time in which the viewer exists, the time of the city, and the time of the repeated life and death of the flowers, all of these different times intersect and overlap, while the viewer’s body, the city, and the world of the artwork remain connected. The artwork space is an overlap of different times and space.

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.
