Immersed In A Crystal Universe

Interdisciplinary art collective teamLab created an enormous virtual exhibition in Odaiba, Tokyo, including the ‘Crystal Universe‘, an epic interactive maze of lights and colors.

Using accumulated light points, the creatives from teamLab formed a unique space that reacts to the visitor’s choices as the particles of light are digitally controlled and change according to movement. “The result is an installation consisting of an accumulation of lights, forming a sculpture that expresses the universe,” explain the artists. Strolling through the ‘Crystal Universe’, visitors can choose the elements that would appear on the installation with their smartphones, stepping into a new way of interacting with the body of art. While ‘Crystal Universe’ is created by elements selected by the viewers, each action or change affects the other, too. This makes the work not only excellently interactive, but also continuously changing and open to new visual variants.
