An upcropping of projection mapped screens takes root in teamLab’s interactive installation at this year’s Milan Expo. Staged in the Japanese Pavilion, HARMONY reimagines the symbolic Japanese rice paddy, the age-old foundation of country’s agricultural, as leaf-shaped screens reflecting pools of multicolored light. Installed at different heights throughout the room, the projection-mapped field replies to visitors’ movements with a myriad of dynamic designs, blooming in green swaths of grass and wriggling with silvery schools of fish. “This interactive art installation creates a space where visitors look as if they are wading their way through the ears of rice,” says teamLab on their website. “As they wander around, they can experience a passing of nature that is so characteristic of Japan across the period of a whole year.”
HARMONY pairs with DIVERSITY, teamLab's other work at Milan Expo, which is something of a smartphone-inabled interactive, projected waterfall that can be experienced in 360°. Check out both installations below, and see more of our teamLab coverage after the jump.
