Japanese Trees Dazzle With New Art Exhibit

A Japanese installation using lights and sound is so cool it basically renders all other trees boring by comparison.

The Creators Project’s Annie Armstrong introduces the world to teamLab’s Resonating Trees, which takes an ordinary walk around a bunch of trees into something magical.

The artistic group’s YouTube channel posted the following video that features the experience, now residing in Nagasaki, Japan.

Essentially, by merely approaching any number of trees you unlock a waterfall of colors and sounds.

It’s as if the foliage comes alive and answers the curious visitor:

It’s like we died and went to Pandora.

Thankfully, enjoying the installation doesn’t mandate transferring consciousness to a Na'vi body as seen in the movie “Avatar.”

TeamLab explains on its website: “When approached by a person, almost within touching distance, the tree changes its light color and produces a sound that is unique to that color. The tree then transmits its newly changed color to the trees located opposite and on both sides. The trees receiving the new color produce the same color and sound unique to that color. This light and sound transmission continues from one tree to the others producing ripple effect.”

Now the website doesn’t state specifically where in Nagasaki that you can enjoy the gorgeous display.

However, an image on the website makes it seem that it may reside at Huis Ten Bosch, located at 1-1 Huis Ten Bosch Machi, Sasebo in the Nagasaki Prefecture.

Any travelers in the area, please let us know if we are on the right track, and you spot what is a truly brilliant attraction.
