SURROUNDING DIGITAL ART TAKES ROOT IN TOKYO FROM TODAY

Tokyo / Walking on planets and black holes or contemplating how a whale swims underfoot are some of the experiences offered by a new museum in Tokyo from the Japanese digital art collective TeamLab, known for its avant-garde works.

The museum, conceptualized by Japanese digital art company TeamLab, known for its avant-garde works, would be installing half a thousand projectors over 10,000 square meters (107639 sq feet), to permanently display its spectacular three-dimensional works at the MORI Building Digital Art centre located in the Tokyo Bay.

The museum, which will open today, is the first such large space to be dedicated exclusively to digital art and a single group of creators, making it “unique in the world,” said the director of the centre Ou Sungiyama, during a preview.

It took three years to build this ode to digital art in a physical space that aims to “make the world understand through bodies,” said TeamLab founder, Toshiyuki Inoko.

Once immersed in three-dimensional spaces, nature – as the main and favourite theme of the collective – connects with the human body in each of the 50 permanent works displayed in a museum that aspires to offer “experiences that cannot be found anywhere else in the world,” according to Inoko.

Walking with butterflies fluttering around the feet or small fishes swimming are just some of the ways in which the museum plans to connect the visitors with the digital art that seems to dissolve borders, spread across five floors of the museum.

About 550 people are part of the TeamLab collective, which aims to merge the plastic arts with the latest technology.

“We present a world that we have never seen before and is constantly changing,” Inoko explained. At this time of year, an orchestra of flowers overflows with walls, floors and ceilings representing summer, while when autumn arrives, these will give way to new shapes and colours.

It is very easy to get lost in the corridors that connect one area with another and that is, truly, the intention of TeamLab, according to Inoko, who added that they decided not to include instructions or directions for visitors in order to push them to explore by themselves.

The creations are not only designed for adults, but children can also find an aquarium where the fish they draw come to life. (June 21, 2018, EFE/Practica Español)
