teamlab transforms the 1,500 square meter exhibition space into a synesthetic labyrinth using real-time projections and interactive technology. the flower artwork shifts and grows under the influence of the viewer’s actions, ensuring that visual states can never be replicated.

the work is rendered in real time by a computer program which brings the flowers to life. ‘the seasons change gradually across the installation space,’ explains the design team. ‘a seasonal year of flowers blossom according to the changing seasons, and the place where they grow gradually moves’.
