An universe with crystals. Light art installation by teamLab.
・Wander through the Crystal Universe
This artwork uses accumulated light points to create a sculptural body, similar to the way distinct dots of color form an image in a pointillist painting. In Crystal Universe, the particles of light are digitally controlled, and change based on the viewer’s interactivity with the work. The result is an installation consisting of an accumulation of lights, forming a sculpture that expresses the universe.
Viewers are invited to enter and walk around within the three-dimensional light space. This movement affects the light particles and creates changes in the installation. Viewers can also interact with the work by using their smartphones to select elements that make up the Crystal Universe.
While Crystal Universe is created by elements selected by the viewers, each action or change affects the other. The viewer’s position within the artwork also influences how the work is created; thus, the artwork is continuously changing.
