'teamLab' created this unique digital butterfly exhibit, which will be featured at the START Art Fair in London. The exhibit titled 'Flutter of Butterflies Beyond Borders' takes up an entire room.

The entirety of one room at the Saatchi Gallery will be covered in a digital butterfly display. The butterflies will dance and soar across the walls and ceilings of the room. The walls are covered with mirrors to enhance the experience. While each butterfly is illuminated with a digitized glow, when they come together to create a swarm of insects, it intensifies the entire scene.

As guests enter the room it will change and alter the course of the butterflies. The insects will either wither, die, spring up or blossom. The goal for this creative art and technology-based display that aims to depict the relationship between humans and nature.
