This Museum of digital art and immersive, which just opened its doors in Tokyo, offers multiple three-dimensional spaces in 10,000 m2, using 520 computers and 470 projectors from Epson and Panasonic.
Lovers of art and technology have a spectacular Museum of digital art - called teamLab bordeless, a world without borders, located at Palette Town of Odaiba, an artificial island in the Bay of Tokyo in which is Mori Building, real estate company of this project designed and created by teamLab, interdisciplinary creative group that uses innovative digital technologies to express art.
In particular, Mori Building Digital Art Museum teamLab Borderless It is a Museum of digital art on a large scale (nothing less than 10,000 m2), in which groups of works of art created a world without borders in three-dimensional spaces, where works are displayed and 'leave' the room freely and 'slide' by the pas illos; they form connections and interact with people; communicate with other works and sometimes intermingle.
Visitors can create new interactive experiences, immerse yourself in the digital art of a space to another and explore this world with her body, for which the Japanese 'ultra-tecnologos' used 520 computers and 470 high-brightness projectors and performance of Japanese manufacturers of the stature of Epson Y Panasonic.
In the rear, a similar number of creative digital artists, engineers, programmers, mathematicians, experts in robotics, and so work so nothing fails in this Museum, who wants to be one of the great attractions of face to the Tokyo 2020 summer Olympics.
This vast three-dimensional complex boasts more than 40 digital and interactive installations to create a digital world of art and entertainment pioneer in the world, under the concept of tearing down the boundaries between"an art; between art and visitors; between self and others", so visitors can melt in the art and form part of it, with facilities that are transformed according to the presence of the public, establishing a new relationship that transcends the boundaries between people and the world.
So Toshiyuki Inoko, teamLab co-founder says: "we have created a universe without borders, composed of works of art that move by themselves, communicate among them and sometimes mingle with others. I want this space to be a place where you can remember that in our world borders do not exist.
Furthermore and given that this singular museum facilities are digital, teamLab can adapt them continually to add new features, such as seasonal changes or completely different landscapes.
"The works are not either pre-recorded animations, or images in loop, but are performed in real time. The fact that the universe is transformed with the presence of the other is very important to us. I am part of the work, as well as visitors,"stresses Inoko.
In this work there are two recurring themes: nature and communication/interaction, digital creations ranging from a paddy field, with pods that you can walk and the scenery that changes with the seasons, up to walls with flowers Digital that move or fall when you touch them or a stunning waterfall that falls through a wall and floods the space.
For its creators, "it's uniting art and the Viewer; There is a single point of view. In this museum the person becomes the Center and the artwork changes with you, everything is created from his perspective".
If this were not enough, the digital works of art does not always stay at a place, are not fixed in space, to the point that some digital fish can swim and transform the next room, while a few crows can scare away some visitors ,... the creative possibilities are endless, since nothing is reproduced in loop, as secure from teamLab.
Another installation is an interactive mirror room, with lights that light up and change color when a visitor approaches, or stand in the middle of this room to enjoy an experience completely immersive that exceeds the Infinity Rooms of Yayoi Kusama.
For children has been created a dynamic 'forest' with multiple activities requiring jumping, climbing or make their way through the creations of art that can be made during the entire process, and even draw the favorite animal and subsequently scan it so that it begins to interact with the small along the walls. A space in which they are all artists.
If you opt for a more serene experience, called 'tea house', inspired by the Japanese ceremony, not only stays in a cup of tea or matcha, but that each Cup comes with a digital flower projection until it moves or is drunk.
