A Japanese Forest is Bathed in a Rainbow of Colored Light

“A place with mysterious lights spread out over a Word Heritage Site forest.” One of my favorite art collectives, teamlab, is up to it again, this time bathing a Japanese forest in a rainbow of lights. Near Shimogamo Shrine, they present Resonating Trees, colored lights that shine on individual plants before subtly fading away. As visitors or animals approach the trees, the lights change color and a musical tone emits from the forest. This satisfies both my love for art and rainbows. See it in action by watching the video, below. This breathtaking installation can be seen from now through August 31, 2016.
