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!
