Crows are Chased and the Chasing Crows are destined to be Chased as well, Transcending Space.

This immersive audiovisual installation depicts the creation of life and takes visitors inside the heart of nature. The artwork features crows, rendered in light, that fly around the space leaving trails of light in their path. Swooping through the space and chasing one another, the crows collide, creating colourful flowers in their wake. They represent the Yatagarasu, a three-legged crow which is believed to be the embodiment of the Sun in Japanese mythology. The formation of the flowers resulting from the crow's collisions alludes to the genesis of life from the Sun's energy.

Black Waves

Black Waves is an expression of nature, rendered entirely in digital technology. It depicts the sea in the style of traditional Japanese painting. In the Japanese tradition, oceans, rivers and bodies of water are often represented as a series of curvilinear lines. The movement of these lines gives the impression that water itself is alive. teamLab have created this effect by calculating the interaction of hundreds of thousands of individual water particles, and then representing the movement of waves in a crescendo of white foam in a virtual 3D environment.  

Black Waves blurs the boundary between viewer and the artwork, and invites visitors to regard themselves as part of the seascape, thereby understanding that there is no separation between ourselves and nature.

Sliding through the Fruit Field

Transiting from the Nature section of the exhibition, to the Town section, is a new artwork, that will take the place of the physical slide in Future World. Sliding through the Fruit Field is a playful and colourful interactive artwork designed for children that is projected onto a newly designed slide.
Visitors become a beam of life-giving sunlight, and as they glide down the slope, their energy is transferred to the fruit field, causing flowers and fruit to blossom and grow. As the different elements interact in the field, new seeds are sown, leading to new life.
