Flowers are Crimson – Dome Version
teamLab, 2004, Digital Installation, 11min 1sec (Φ30m), Sound: Tsukasa Yamaguchi & Yukihito Endo, Bamboo Flute: Yutaro Nagao
In the space of “TDW-DOME,” which has a diameter beyond even the 30 meter diameter of the center hall, SUIBOKU SPACE will be expanded as a picture scroll story having a total length of about 100 meters. Thanks to a full-dome animation system, it is possible to envelop “TDW-DOME” in an animation just like a planetarium. [CONCEPT] “Our Japanese ancestors might have had a fundamentally different conceptual logic of understanding and visualizing space. This understanding contrasts with objective western perspective.” We call such space the “Ultra Subjective Space”. Based on this concept, we constructed a 3D environment which recreates the teamLab’s recognition of Japanese space logic. It is a narrative where the protagonist would find enlightenment through his introspective journey. He falls down into a fairy tale world and faces the ambivalent commonality of his own thinking. Through this confrontation his worldly desires slowly begin to fade and his view of the real world he returns into finally changes.
