A digital art museum opening in Tokyo, Japan is making the news as a breathtaking journey to the wonderland of the future.
TeamLab will open the permanent museum, “MORI Building DIGITAL ART MUSEUM: teamLab Borderless,” on June 21 after a series of exhibitions all over the world.
TeamLab, an art collective, began their activities in 2001 and has since pursued the intersections of art, design, science, technology and nature.
The collective consists of specialists in various fields, such as artists, architects, programmers, engineers, CG animators and even mathematicians.
“High Mountains and Deep Valleys” at the “Athletics Forest”
“Digital technology has liberated art from materials and made it possible to cross the boundary. We believe there is no boundary between ourselves and nature, and between ourselves and the world. Everyone is in each other,” teamLab said.
“Forest of Resonating Lamps”
Hence the name of the upcoming museum, which teems with interactive, digital art installations that are no less larger than life.
“Sketch Aquarium” at “Future Park”
It consists of five “worlds” that cover a whopping 10,000 square meters of space, using 520 computers and 470 projectors to display an unparalleled three-dimensional experience.
The Tea House
Sections of the museum include “Borderless World,” “Athletics Forest,” “Forest of Resonating Lamps,” “Future Park” and a special tea house.
