teamLab is going to show the digital artwork “Graffiti Nature” at Honolulu Biennial 2017. Graffiti Nature is created by you. The more animals and flowers that you draw and color in, the more the natural world expands around you. Your drawing is somewhere in Graffiti Nature. Can you find it?
The animals in Graffiti Nature eat other animals, and are eaten. All are part of one ecosystem.
When the animals that you draw eat other animals their number increases. Butterflies increase in places where there are flowers. Animals are eaten by other animals, but if they do not eat they will die and disappear.If the animals sense you, they run away. Stand still and flowers will blossom around you. Walk around and the flowers will scatter. Search for your animals, and whilst making the flowers bloom, explore this world that everyone has created.
