teamLab is an Ultra-technologists group made up of specialists including programmers (user interface engineers, database engineers, network engineers, hardware engineers, computer vision engineers, and software architects), mathematicians, architects, CG animators, web designers, graphic designers, artists, editors and more. They create works through “experimentation and innovation” making the borders between science, technology, art and design more ambiguous. They are one of the hottest new artist groups working in the world today with exhibitions opening in a number of major international museums over the next year.
Neither a pre-recorded animation nor a loop, the works are rendered in real-time by a computer program. On a background that recalls a traditional gold-ground Japanese folding screen, flowers spring up, grow, bud and blossom before their petals begin withering, until the flowers eventually fade away. The cycle of growth and decay repeats itself in perpetuity.
