teamLab’s Borderless exhibition is a must see in Tokyo Japan

Borderless Exhibition

In Tokyo teamLab’s Borderless interactive exhibition at the Mori Building digital Art Museum is a must see. The 10,000 square meter space has about a dozen very large experiential spaces. The different spaces combine light, sound, and 3D design to create pocket universes. A true magical experience.

teamLab, the creator of the exhibit, was founded in 2001, and it describes itself as “an art collective, an interdisciplinary group of ultratechnologists whose collaborative practice seeks to navigate the confluence of art, science, technology, design and the natural world.” They succeeded with Borderless!

Kewl Backgrounds

Kewl Background

Cool Backgrounds generates beautiful, abstract, geometric images perfect for use as backgrounds on your computer or mobile gadgetry. There are four different styles, many color scheme options, and a feed of nice free photos.

While finishing up a gradient generator project CSS Gradient (which launched earlier this year), I unexpectedly noticed the popularity of wallpaper and background images. Digging a bit deeper, I found this huge community of online sites that were curating wallpaper images from the eclectic Deviant Art crowd to the more modern creative commons image sites. While free static images are great, what was missing was a tool that enables non-technical folks to use all the emerging javascript libraries to create unique images of their own. So Cool Backgrounds was born 💥.

This art piece generates a wall of big bubbles

This is really fun. With Japanese artist Rintaro Hara‘s latest piece, visitors can make giant bubbles simply by pulling on a rope. By doing so, her Projection Wall raises a grid of ropes that have been dunked in a soapy solution. Then, as it’s rising, eight fans blow through to create a rainbow-y wall of extra-large bubbles. And, who doesn’t love a wall of bubbles?
