The Museum of Experimental Science and Innovation in Tokyo is currently featuring an interactive flower installation, called Floating Flower Garden. A simple white space has been turned into a flower oasis; over 2,300 colourful and fragrant orchids, with their full root system intact, are suspended from the ceiling. As visitors walk through the room, the eye level flowers rise above their heads, creating a path way for the visitors to walk.
“Flowers and I are of the same root, the Garden and I are one.”
Floating Flower Garden is the latest installation by TeamLab, a Japanese art collective of “ultra-technologists” lead by Toshiyuki Inoko. They’re currently staging a large-scale retrospective of work at Miraikan in Tokyo. The show is so popular that it has been extended for 2 months, and will be on display until May 1, 2015.
