A WORLD OF WONDER BY TEAMLAB, TOKYO
‘A World Of Wonder’
16 July – 31 August, 2016
Japanese art collective TeamLab are an interdisciplinary creative group championing a digital field of engineers, mathematicians, architects, CG animators as artists that create experiential works balancing art, science and technology.
Recently the collective created the exhibition ‘A World Of Wonder, DMM Planets’ in Tokyo’s Odaiba, providing an experiential insight into representations of the universe and world beyond.
Three unique works were presented in individual spaces, all requiring human interaction in order to fully be realised. Upon entering the works, the work ‘Soft Black Hole’ was almost the limbo in the universe, preparing you to understand the weight of your own body with that of others as the black moulds changed shape as others joined to lay. Next, the first work captivated you immediately, as ‘Wander Through The Crystal Universe’ comprised of over 30,000 LED lights with various lighting sequences and sound compositions yet forming a sculpture representing the universe. ‘Drawing On The Water Surface Created By The Dance Of Koi and People’ engaged visitors with sensory image projections in knee-level water that guests were able to walk through. ‘Floating In The Falling Universe Of Flowers’ was a final moment to relax on the floor as projections of digital images floated across the curved ceiling, an opportunity to really feel weightless as almost floating yourself in the new world.
