After participating in the Noor Riyadh light and art festival, teamLab returns to its native Tokyo to unveil two new flame installations. Entitled Universe of Fire Particles Falling from the Sky and Universe of Fire Particles, the interactive public artworks were inspired by the phenomenon of light and heat generated by combustion. The digital technologists over at acclaimed Japanese art collective translated this phenomenon into a work that shows “a collection of lines drawn by the movement of molecules of burning gas,” as per a description.

Accompanying the new flame installations is a series of additional digital-based works that will change with the seasons including one experiential piece that will complement the cherry blossom season across a massive domed space. In this immersive work, visitors are able to walk barefoot through real water with cherry blossom petals projected onto the water as if they were dancing “on the infinite expanse of the water’s surface.”

Universe of Fire Particles Falling from the Sky is currently displayed outside the teamLab Planets museum in Tokyo. Head to teamLab’s website for more information.

Elsewhere in art, a $55 million USD Picasso painting is leading Christie’s Reformatted evening sale.
