Inside this digital art museum that should be on your next must-see while in Tokyo


When news first broke that teamLab is getting a museum to their name, there were gleeful whoops and joyful smiles all around. teamLab is an art collective that is known to create mesmerising and mindblowing projections sans paintings and sculptures. The group uses projection-mapping technology to produce interactive digital art.


The Mori Building Digital Art Museum teamLab Borderless occupies 10,000sqm and there are over 40 installations projected here with the help of 520 computers and 470 projectors. You will see two running themes in the exhibition space that includes nature and communication or interaction. Take a walk through a seasonal setting and stop to admire a floral digital wall where the flowers will disperse when you “touch” them or see symbiotic creatures swim around and transform the next room as the artwork changes with you.


The interactive part of the museum also allows you to express your creativity by drawing your own animal that will then be scanned and projected so you get to see it swimming or dancing along the walls. The possibilities are endless with a digital art museum and of course, ever changing. You can immerse and lose yourself in the alternate reality for hours, just take a look below to see what it’s all about:
