the installation by teamLab, in partnership with shiseido group, comprises a luminous forest of trees, transforming jewel changi airport into a glowing valley floor. each tree’s light is autonomous and pulsing, shifting colors as visitors pass by and radiating toward neighboring trees. in the same way that light is transmitted between trees, the tone continually permeates and spreads. this color-specific tone changes pitch according to the tree’s elevation along the shiseido forest valley trail. light resonating outward from deep within signifies a presence, serving to enhance one’s awareness of the presence of others within the public realm.

teamLab developed the installations through an investigation of the relationship between humans and the world through art. the artwork transforms due to the presence of humans, and this in turn, changes and redefines the relationship between people in the same space. through an immersive interactivity, the installation generates an experience that transcends and blurs the boundaries between people and the artwork, and between the self and others. designed by architect moshe safdie, jewel integrates a wide array of lifestyle offerings including gardens and attractions, over 280 retail and dining options, a hotel and facilities for airport operations.
