Strokes of Life - Birthday / Anniversary / Marriage Proposal

teamLab, 2017, Interactive Digital Installation + Light Sculpture, Happy Birthday:1 min 22 sec, Happy Anniversary / Will You Marry Me?: 1 min 44 sec, H: 19800 mm W: 15000 mm D: 15000 mm, Sound: DAISHI DANCE

This work consists of a 15m diameter circular lighted rink, and a cylinder at a height of 20m (D7m x H14m) that consists of a collection of light points.

When people stand on the rink, Spatial Calligraphy is created. As it is drawn in three dimensions in the rink, it turns into a message that has been sent from a visitor’s smartphone. The calligraphy that evolves gives birth to life. Simultaneously the same calligraphic message appears in the cylinder as a three-dimensional light sculpture of brushstrokes.

teamLab has been working on the Spatial Calligraphy series since the collective was formed. Spatial Calligraphy is a new interpretation of traditional Japanese calligraphy reconstructed in three-dimensional space, expressing the depth, speed and power of the brushstroke.

The work is rendered in real time by a computer program, it is neither a prerecorded animation nor imagery on loop.The work as a whole is in constant change; previous states will never be repeated and can never be seen again.
