The new art museum is expected to become the world’s biggest institution focusing on digital and interactive art. The Mori Building Digital Art Museum: teamLab Borderless is a collaboration between the property developer Mori Building Company and the interdisciplinary art collective teamLab, Artforum writes.
The museum of 10,000 sq metres is a complex of 50 digital artworks, 520 computers and 470 projectors. The word “borderless” in the museum’s name means that interactive works can move out of the room, communicate with people and even merge with each other.
The museum consists of five connected zones. The first one is titled Borderless World, where visitors immerse into computer generated landscapes featuring waterfalls, forests and birds.
The second zone, Athletics Forest, offers visitors to move, jumping on a virtual trampoline or climbing a virtual pole.
The third zone, Future Park, is a virtual aquarium with digital fish. The third area, Forest of Lamps, is filled with colourful lamps. In the fifth zone, En Tea House, visitors are offered tea in virtual cups.
TeamLab’s founder Toshiyuki Inoko said in a statement: “Artworks can transcend boundaries, influence, and sometimes intermingle with each other. In this way, all the boundaries between artists, people and artworks, dissolve and the world teamLab Borderless is created.”Subscribe to our mailing list:
