Exploring the intersection of technology with art is an installation in Japan called the “Floating Flower Garden” consisting of over 2,300 real, living flowers suspended in the air and motion-controlled. Floating Flower Garden is the latest installation by TeamLab, a Japanese art collective of “ultra-technologists” lead by Toshiyuki Inoko. As viewers move through the installation space, 3D cameras track them, moving the flowers up and out of the way so the viewer is constantly in a hemisphere of flowers, and multiple audience members can be tracked at once.

A little different than some of the art I post, but I love the intersection of the organic and outdoors-ey with the technological element of tracking the users and moving the garden around them.
