Cold Life

teanLab, 2014, Digital Work, 2160×3840 pixels, 7min 15sec(loop), Calligraphy: Sisyu



A calligraphic series of brush strokes modelled in virtual 3D space forms the character 生(Japanese/Mandarin for ‘life’) which then metamorphoses into a tree. As time passes, various life forms begin emanating and growing from within the tree.

In computer graphics, and similarly in this digital work, wireframe models with abstract and high levels of data are rendered into 3D objects. When the facades of these computer-generated images are peeled off, their mesh-like structures are revealed underneath. As expressed via the intricacies of this work, teamLab exemplifies 3D rendering in its stripped-down state while maintaining a highly complex and elaborate construction.

This art work is Ultra HD, four times the resolution of FHD (Full High Definition). The high resolution allows for the expression of the extremely intricate detail of the work.

Crows are chased and the chasing crows are destined to be chased as well – Black in White
teanLab, 2014, Digital Work, 9600×1080 pixels, 3min 40sec (loop),  Sound: Hideaki Takahashi

A virtual world constructed in three dimensions on a computer is brought to life in moving images, using what we at teamLab consider to be the logical structure of the spatial perception of our Japanese ancestors (what we call “Ultra Subjective Space”).

“Itano Circus” is a unique Japanese animation technique created by animator Ichiro Itano. The screen is packed to capacity with swarms of missiles that are drawn in distorted perspective so that the audience will feel a stronger sense of dynamic movement and impact as they fly wildly about the space. Through ultra-high-speed camerawork and through staging that envelops the viewer’s perspective, this technique creates an overwhelmingly beautiful image. As a homage to the Itano Circus, we expanded space distortion used in 2D animation in 3D space: this is to explore what sort of logic of spatial perception constitutes the distortion of space pioneered by Japan’s animators, and to ask ourselves if this is in line with the continuous tradition of Japanese spatial perception. Recreating a distorted space in three dimensions expands the viewer’s unrestricted perspective, and attempt to recreate actual space. The installation is also an experiment to see what kind of experience viewers encounter dividing the viewers’perspective and by deploying divided perspective into three dimensional space.

Yatagarasu, the three-legged crow, is a creature found in Japanese mythology. It is believed to represent the sun and the will of Heaven.

Universe of Water Particles
teamLab, 2013, Digital Work, 1920x5400 pixels

Universe of Water Particles is a waterfall created in a computer-simulated environment. A virtual rock is first sculpted and computer-generated water consisting of hundreds of thousands of water particles is then poured onto it. The computer calculates the movement of these particles to produce an accurate waterfall simulation that flows in accordance to physical laws. Next, 0.1 percent of the particles are selected and lines are drawn in relation to them. The sinuousness of the lines depends on the overall interaction among the water particles and forms the magnificent cascade seen on screen.

This work of digital art relies on what teamLab considers to be the logic structure of spatial recognition of their Japanese ancestors.

The waterfall is rendered at a resolution five times that of full HD to allow for the intricate and extreme detail of the work.
