One of the most appreciated current exhibitions is the Floating Flower Garden hosted in the Miraikan National Museum of Emerging Science and Innovation, Tokyo, Japan. The installation represents a garden that unveils itself under the hypnotized eyes of the visitor just like in a fairytale.
Though only an indoor suspended flower garden would have been quite spectacular, what teamLab, a Japanese art collective of tech specialists, created is just breathtaking. Their indoor garden, resembling more a deep colorful forest than a garden, has a motion sensor embedded making it respond to the visitor approaching, lifting up the floral lianas so he or she can discover the world of the floating plants.
A legendary Zen master teaching, Naquan, inspired the concept of the floating garden. He said that humans and nature are the same “kind” and part of the wonderful and wondrous fabric of life. Nanquan was a founder of a famous monastery in Japan and a hermit who spent more than 30 years in a cave.
The Floating Flower Garden can be visited until 1st of May, so don’t miss it if you are in Tokyo.
