Floating Flower Garden is the latest installation by TeamLab. It is an interactive environment of vegetation in which visitors enter a room filled with floating flowers that ebb and flow to create an air bubble for the viewer. Multiple visitors can move through the space as the flowers move away from them and surround room.
TeamLab is a Japanese art collective of “ultra technologists” led by Toshiyuki Inoko. They’re currently staging a large-scale retrospective of work at Miraikan in Tokyo. The show has been so popular that it got extended for 2 months and this piece was installed as an encore. It’s currently on view, along with the rest of the show, through May 1, 2015.
