Walking Through This Lamp-Filled Room Is Like Swimming With Jellyfish

It’s a simple idea for an art installation: Fill an entire giant room with glowing lamps from floor to ceiling. On paper it sounds an awful lot like your grandma’s living room, but walking through teamLab’s Forest of Resonating Lamps exhibit feels a lot more like drifting through a giant swarm of jellyfish.

The color-changing lamps are able to detect the presence of a person standing nearby, which triggers a chain reaction as neighboring lamps begin to grow brighter. Eventually, the wave of illumination makes its way across the entire room. At the very least, it’s a hell of a lot better than getting stung by a bunch of jellyfish.
