Massless Suns and Dark Spheres

teamLab, 2022, Interactive Digital Installation, Endless, Sound: Hideaki Takahashi

Spheres of light, and spheres of darkness.
Each sphere of light can be clearly perceived in the space as though the light is solidified, however, there is no material surface boundary. The spheres cannot be physically sensed, and the perception of the boundary between the artwork and the body is ambiguous. When you try to touch a sphere, your hand goes into the sphere and the spheres around it react.
When you continue to concentrate on the suns, dark purple and blue spheres begin to appear, as though the darkness has been solidified.

If you try to touch a sphere of light, the sphere shines brightly and the surrounding spheres resonate continuously, one after the other. When Tea in Spontaneous Order shines brightly, the surrounding spheres also resonate one after the other.

The work questions the notion of existence and what it means.
