Bringing the World of Agriculture Indoors at the 2015 Expo in Milan

Harmony and Diversity at the 2015 Expo in Milan, by Teamlab, in Milan, Italy. Various mediums can influence the way we see landscape architecture, change how we think about design, and impact how we can give a supreme experience for users of the site or project. Teamlab, a collaborative group of artists based out of Tokyo, makes installations that incorporate the crafts of professions from all across the board. Their group consists of people with backgrounds in architecture, mathematics, art, engineering, animation, and graphic design, just to name a few. They have set their focus on the marriage between science and art, using public installations as the medium through which users may experience the design. 20 Million Visitors on Their Way Teamlab is set to showcase its new projects at the 2015 Expo in Milan. The Expo is hosted annually from May 1 until Oct. 31, more than 140 countries participate, and upward of 20 million visitors are expected to attend over the course of the six months. This year’s expo revolves around regional foods and each individual country’s ideas about encouraging a more sustainable future. WATCH: Discover Expo Milano 2015

The installation named “harmony”, from afar, looks like a beautiful mesh of colors taking the form of the agricultural palettes of Japan. Look more closely, and you will see that the images are being projected, in harmony, onto individual screens situated atop what is symbolic of a rice stalk. The screens all sit at various heights, so users can feel the motion of the installation and how it symbolizes Japanese agriculture.

The Lighting Changes as You Move Through the Space The rooms where these showcases are open for public interaction are lit only by the projections onto each of the screens that people wade through. The lighting changes as you move through the space, getting darker and lighter, broader and more miniscule. From a distance, you can observe the larger scope of the project, such as the fields and large pools of water, but take time to look around and you will see small details — fish and insects swimming and crawling their way from screen to screen.
