Resonating Forest in the Ravine

teamLab, 2019, Interactive Digitized Nature, Endless, Sound: Hideaki Takahashi

The forest in the ravine shines brightly. Each tree’s light is autonomous, shining brightly and then fading, as if it’s breathing.

As people pass nearby, the light of the tree changes color, and a tone specific to that color resonates out. The light of an individual tree spreads radially to the neighboring trees. In the same way that the light is transmitted between the trees, the tone also propagates through each tree, spreading continuously.

When a light resonates from deep within the forest, it means that there is someone there. Perhaps people will become more aware than usual of the presence of other people  in the same space.
