Shimmering River of ​Resonating Spheres​​

teamLab, 2016, Interactive Installation, Endless, Sound: Hideaki Takahashi

Spheres of light float on the surface of the water of Japan’s Shinmachi River. They move on their own, shining brightly​, then disappearing—as if they are softly breathing. When the spheres of light are touched by a person or receive an impact, the color of their light changes and they emit a musical tone corresponding to their new color. They can also resonate with the spheres around them, changing to the same color and emitting the same tone, creating a chain reaction.
