Thursday Salute to Originals: An Interactive Ocean

If you have ever visited the ocean, taken a cruise, or even just viewed photos of seas – you’ve probably been lost in your own thoughts pondering the ocean’s vastness at least once. Maybe you’ve thought about what it would be like to be in the deep depths of the sea, to be a part of it?

If so, then we’re happy to introduce you to this mesmerizing installation created by the Japanese artists from teamLab! The installation’s fitting title is Moving Creates Vortices and Vortices Create Movement, which quite literally mimics the ocean. What’s unique, however, is that the aquatic environment has been captured and simulated in a mirrored room.

Once you step into the room, you are immediately overcome with a swirling sensation thanks to ‘reactive particle effects‘ – And they are based on your own movements; following you, guiding you, or making your stop right in your tracks. The ocean’s vast feel is replicated by the mirrors, creating the perception of infinite space. If you were to stop moving in the room completely, the exhibit would go dark and black – much like how the ocean appears at night.

This Thursday, we salute teamLab for another unique, interactive installation! Moving Creates Vortices and Vortices Create Movement allows us to explore the ocean and its depths in a sensory way, without ever having to actually get lost in the dark sea itself.
