Botanical garden art exhibit paints night in stellar colors

The Yomiuri Shimbun

Egg-shaped objects light up in a kaleidoscope of colors at Nagai Botanical Garden in Osaka City in a show conceived by Tokyo-based digital art group teamLab. The show launched Friday as a permanent nighttime exhibition and features 14 works, including the egg-shaped objects, which change color as they sense vibrations and wind pressure, and images that change in response to the movement of birds in the garden. The installations are active from 7:30 p.m. to 10 p.m. most evenings. “The show was fantastic, and I felt like I had wandered into a work of art,” said a 50-year-old office worker from Chuo Ward, Osaka.
