Must See: teamLab's “Resonating Trees” in Kyoto

The Japanese art collective teamLab has unveiled two stunning new art installations, “Resonating Trees” and “Resonating Spheres,” as part of the Tokyo Light Festival.

“Resonating Trees” transforms the approach to the Shimogamo Shrine in the Tadasu Forest into a magical space. Reacting to movement, whether from a person or a small animal, each tree leading to the shrine lights up in different colors, reacting to each other in a ripple effect, while also producing a specific sound for each color.

Meanwhile, inside the Sakura Gate of the shrine “Resonating Spheres” is another interactive installation with large floating spheres responding to touch by changing color and emitting a musical note unique to the color.

The installations will remain on site until August 31.
