Vortices: Latest Dizzying Interactive Installation By TeamLab Brings The Ocean Indoors

‘When a person moves, a force is applied in that direction. As a result a flow occurs. When a fast flow occurs a rotation phenomenon is produced due to the difference in the flow velocity around it, creating a vortex. Flow in the artwork is expressed as a continuum of numerous particles and the interaction between the particles is calculated. Lines are drawn according to the trails of the particles. The accumulation of lines that represent the work are then “flattened” in line with what teamLab considers to be ultra-subjective space. The faster the person moves, the stronger the force is applied in that direction. If a person is not moving or there are no more people, no flow will occur and nothing will be present in the space. Works are born and continue to transform under the influence of people’s movement. In the ocean, complicated terrain such as an island produces flow velocity difference and a vortex is generated. Vortices swirl up the carcasses of organisms sunk to the bottom of the ocean, producing nutritious seawater. This becomes a source of nutrition for plankton to grow and nourishes the sea life. Vortices therefore contribute to enriching the ocean.’ – Japanese collective teamLab
The Vortices installation just opened at the National Gallery of Victoria in Melbourne, Australia where it will remain on view through April 15, 2018.
