What a Loving, and Beautiful World

Sisyu + teamLab, 2011, Interactive digital Installation, Calligraphy: Sisyu, Sound: Hideaki Takahashi

When your hand touches a character the world that character embodies will appear and a new world will be created.

The objects that are released from the characters go on to influence each other in the new world.

Behind the projected world there is a 360 degree computer generated space. The objects that are born from the characters are placed at various positions within that space, and the physical influences and connections between the objects are calculated in real time, producing a complex and natural animation. For example; if the wind blows the objects are subjected to the physical influence of the wind; butterflies are frightened by fire but attracted to flowers. Just as in nature no two moments are repeated, the passing moments of the animation are never repeated and new visual worlds are constantly being created.

Chinese and Japanese characters were at first carved in turtle shell, ox or deer bones, and were engraved in bronze ware. At that time it can be said that each character contained its own world. Through the characters, the world that you have called up and the worlds that the people around you called up connect and influence to each other to create a new world.
