TEAM-LAB flower and corpse glitch
An animation work based on the concept of “Ultra-Subjective Space”. The concept explores how Japanese ancestors recognized and understood space and how they perceived the world. In the animation a virtual 3 dimensional world is created and then flattened inline with the logic of how we believe Japanese may have once comprehended space. The work based on the themes of nature, the clash of civilizations, cycles and symbiosis. The surface of the animation flakes away and reveals the underlying structure, the complex technology that forms the background to the work.
