Flutter of Butterflies Beyond Borders, Transcending Space

teamLab, 2019, Interactive Digital Installation, Endless, Sound: Hideaki Takahashi

This work is to be viewed from a position close to the entrance.

The artwork begins when the Flutter of Butterflies Beyond Borders, Ephemeral Life enter the Small Universe in the Cave. If other works enter the space, the Flutter of Butterflies Beyond Borders, Ephemeral Life leaves.

The butterflies that enter this space are born from visitors’ touch in the Butterfly House as part of the Flutter of Butterflies Beyond Borders, Ephemeral Life. They transcend the concept of frames, removing the boundaries between artwork spaces as they seamlessly fly between works.

If you stand at a position close to the entrance, the boundary between the wall and the floor disappears. Eventually, the body becomes immersed in the artwork world, and the border between the artwork and the viewer dissolves.

The artwork is not a pre-recorded image that is played back; it is created by a computer program that continuously renders the artwork in real time. As a whole, it is continuously changing, and previous visual states are never replicated. The picture at this moment can never be seen again.
