Do Not Mess With Fish 221,

and you thought fish were fun!

 well these 'electric koi' are certainly fun,

 wading calf deep in a pool of water, the 'fish' are just fascinating to watch,

 visitors to Tokyo’s Odaiba Minna no YUME-TAIRIKU 2016 festival walk slowly through teamLab‘s latest light mapping installation, a shallow pool of water is completely surrounded by mirrored ceiling and walls, highlighting the psychedelic nature of the thousands of computer generated koi fish that are projected around the viewer’s feet, the trails of the fish are sometimes short, 

and sometimes long, the fish also change speed as they swim, often crashing into observers and bursting into scattered multiple single flower lights upon contact,

the video above is mesmerising, it must be a totally calm but awesome experience to walk amongst the fishes, the interactive installation is one of four large-scale immersive experiences produced by the Japanese art collective for the festival which is on view through August 31, 2016, but please check for times and opening hours before jetting off to Japan!
