Nature Can Become Art. This is the catchphrase that lends inspiration to Japan's latest magical garden. Where many have used the progressions, colours, textures, formations, and flow of nature to create ingenious and spectacular landscapes, it's not so often we see digital technology merge with the natural world in this way.
Digital tech wizardry is what teamLab are best known for. This time, their skills seem to once again surpass themselves. Now a fantasy scene can be made more real than ever before thanks to projectors and courageous design principles. A combination of simple object installations and a multitude of projectors have created a mysterious and enchanting experience.
The world-famous Kairakuen Garden, which is known for its gorgeous and figurehead specimens of plum blossom trees has been turned into a medium for fantastical art. With a unique splash of colour and definitive lighting effects, all three thousand plum blossom trees are bathed in ethereal glory. Static shapes and simple forms are placed in neat locations which also radiate with specially chosen colours.
Visitors are welcome to stroll the perfectly designed promenades which now glow with artistic brightness. Splendid mixtures of colour and brightness bring out an adventurous aspect in which exploration uncovers ever deeper grains to the chromatic cloak which seems to spring to life as the early darkness hits.
