Responsive Digital Art Exhibition

TeamLab: Flutter of Butterflies Beyond Borders

Japanese art collective TeamLab brings its impressive interactive digital artwork to the UK for the first time with an immersive installation at the Saatchi Gallery.

The exhibition, titled Flutter of Butterflies Beyond Borders, features a digital ecosystem of flowers and butterflies that visitors can explore. A blackened room is brought to life with ephemeral sweeping imagery of butterflies and flowers that slowly transform in response to the viewers' movements.

Rendered in real time, the flowers begin to spring, bloom and decay, changing in colour to depict the different seasons of the year. By standing still or by making sudden movements, visitors can affect the cycle, generating unique and continuously changing patterns. Gentle sounds accompany the visuals to further enhance this all-encompassing experience.

Interactive platforms continue to push the boundaries of digital aesthetics. For more on responsive colour, look to our Colour Spectrum reports Reactive S/S 17 and Reactive S/S 17: Visual Update.

The exhibition is part of Start art fair at the Saatchi Gallery in London, which runs from September 10-13.
