Dance of Koi and People – Infinity

teamLab infinity

source: team-lab
無限に広がる水面に鯉が泳いでいる。人々は水の中に入り歩くことができる。鯉は、水の中の人々の存在に影響を受け、また、他の鯉の影響を受けながら、泳いでいる。そして、鯉は、人々にぶつかると、花となって散っていく。そして、人々の存在に影響を受けて泳ぐ鯉の軌跡によって、線が描かれていく。

作品はコンピュータプログラムによってリアルタイムで描かれ続けている。あらかじめ記録された映像を再生しているわけではない。全体として以前の状態が複製されることなく、鑑賞者のふるまいの影響を受けながら、変容し続ける。今この瞬間の絵は二度と見ることができない。

Koi swim on the surface of water that stretches out into infinity. People can walk into the water. The movement of the koi is influenced by the presence of people in the water and also other koi. When the fish collide with people they turn into flowers and scatter. The trajectory of the koi is determined by the presence of people and these trajectories trace lines on the surface of the water.

The work is rendered in real time by a computer program. It is neither a prerecorded animation nor on loop. The interaction between the viewer and the installation causes continuous change in the artwork. Previous visual states can never be replicated, and will never reoccur.

hen you stand among the handiwork of teamLab, a Japanese tech art studio, you’re seemingly transported to a sprawling foreign land that engulfs you in a vibrant, light-filled splendor. This immersive approach is now the focus of a massive exhibition that spans 3,000 square meters (over 32,000 square feet) and is called DMM.Planets Art by teamLab. It showcases a variety of the group’s digital work throughout the years, including new pieces just revealed to the public.

The exhibition features four spaces that offer kaleidoscopic color schemes and multisensory activities. Each piece has its own distinct smell, including: the aroma of flowers, a forest, and “the universe”—a scent that astronaut Naoko Yamazaki helped create.

Though the teamLab works all have a different look and feel, interactivity is woven throughout the entire show. In Wander Through the Crystal Universe, the collective installed countless LEDs that hang in the mirrored space. As you walk through it, the hue and intensity of the lights change, making you the “center of the universe.” Alternatively, you can change the space (and take yourself out of the spotlight) with the touch of your smartphone.
