The installation provides visitors a participatory experience with a virtual ecosystem of exaggerated wildlife and plant forms as they physically alter, express themselves within, and ultimately become a part of the work.

teamLab is an international art collective based in Tokyo founded by Toshiyuki Inoko. The group has garnered international attention for their experimental projects that push the capabilities of interactive technologies to create compelling digital environments. Their installations, which often involve immersive digital projections, invite viewers to define and change their experiences through movement-based sensors, scanned drawings, and responsive technology.

”Graffiti Nature” invites visitors to scan and add their own drawn additions to images of reptiles, amphibians, insects, and other creatures that grow, consume one another, and disappear, creating a live ecosystem. As viewers pause to contemplate their surroundings, their stillness encourages the growth of flowers and plants. Through its need for active participation, “Graffiti Nature” dissolves the boundaries between artwork and viewer, ultimately heightening our awareness of the connections between people, images, and the environment.
