Graffiti Nature - High Mountains and Deep Valleys

teamLab, 2016-, Interactive Digital Installation, Sound: Hideaki Takahashi

This is a wide three dimensional space constructed by slopes of various height. This is a world where the creatures that visitors draw will come to life. In this world there are tall mountains and deep valleys, and living things overcome both these mountains and valleys to spread throughout. The creature that you draw is also somewhere in this space. Try looking for them. Plus, all of the butterflies that you and everyone else have drawn will transcend this space, cross the floor, and overcome the boundaries of this installation to fly into other spaces.

Living things eat each other and are eaten by each other to create one ecosystem. When the creature that you draw eats another then the number of your creature will increase. Butterflies will increase in places with lots of flowers. If living things cannot eat or are eaten by others then they will die. If crocodiles are stepped on too much then they’ll die. Flowers will bloom if you stand still long enough, but will disperse if you walk all over them.
