Reversible Rotation, Flying Beyond Borders - One Stroke, Cold Light

teamLab, 2019, Digital Installation, Sound: Hideaki Takahashi

The monitor Spatial Calligraphy artwork Reversible Rotation transcends the boundaries of the display,  and draws across the entire space with a single stroke. This single stroke influences other artworks: it causes the flowers in Forest of Flowers and People: Lost, Immersed and Reborn to scatter. Over time, the Spatial Calligraphy draws across the entire space and begins to rotate.

The Spatial Calligraphy rotates in the artwork space, every aspect rotating in the same direction, but depending on perception, it can appear to be rotating clockwise or counterclockwise.

Spatial Calligraphy offers a contemporary interpretation of traditional Japanese sho (calligraphy) in an abstract space. The artwork reconstructs Japanese sho in three dimensional space and expresses the depth, speed and power of the brush stroke.
