Crows are Chased and the Chasing Crows are Destined to be Chased as well, Transcending Space - Seated Contemplation, Continuous Small Universe

This work is to be viewed while sitting at a specified position in the space.

The artwork begins when the Crows are Chased and the Chasing Crows are Destined to be Chased as well enter the Continuous Small Universe space in teamLab Borderless. When other works enter the space, the crows leave.

Crows are rendered in light as they fly around the space, leaving trails of light in their paths and creating spatial calligraphy. The crows chase one another and in turn are chased themselves. When the chased crows crash into one another, they scatter, turning into flowers. The crows attempt to fly around people in the space, but when they crash into a viewer, they scatter, turning into flowers in the same way.

The installation is rendered in real time by a computer program, it is neither a prerecorded animation nor on loop.The installation as a whole is in constant change, previous states will never be repeated and can never be seen again.
