Tea Tree (From Dec 1, 2018)

teamLab, 2018, Interactive Digital Installation, Endless, Sound: Hideaki Takahashi

When frozen green tea is placed on the table, a tea tree grows from it. Increasing the number of frozen green tea dishes placed on the table causes more tea trees to grow and creates a tea field. The tea trees bloom around the end of autumn. As you move the frozen green tea, the tea tree withers and grows again in a new place.


When the frozen tea disappears, the tea plant withers and disappears.


The work is rendered in real time by a computer program; it is not a prerecorded video. The artwork is influenced by the viewers, as their behavior causes continual change and transformation. Each moment of the artwork can never be seen again and previous states will never be repeated.
