Flutter of Butterflies Beyond Borders, Intersections Create Life - 1 Butterfly where 64 Light Rays Cross

teamLab, 2018, Light Sculpture - Line, Sound: Hideaki Takahashi

This artwork starts when the butterflies from Flutter of Butterflies Beyond Borders enter the Light Sculpture Space of the Flower Forest.


The group of butterflies that come into this space are those from the Flutter of Butterflies Beyond Borders (a group of butterflies born from other artworks, such as the butterflies born from people’s bodies in the Butterfly House). These butterflies release art from the concept of  the frame, removing boundaries from the artwork space, the butterflies seamlessly fly inside other artworks.


Butterflies are expressed at the convergence of light lines and fly around the space in three-dimensions. If people touch the butterflies they disappear.

The artwork ends when the butterflies leave the space and fly again in the space outside. The artwork ends when all the butterflies leave the space and disappear.
