When we were in Tokyo earlier this month I went with my family along with David and his kid to teamLab's Borderless interactive exhibition at the Mori Building digital Art Museum in Tokyo. To say we were blown away is almost an understatement. The 10,000 square meter space has about a dozen very large experiential spaces, each of which would have been worth the price of admission. The different spaces combined light, sound, and 3D design to create pocket universes that either stunned people into blissed out silence or made them run around gleefully. I wasn't expecting it to be as magical as it was.
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!
The exhibit closes on September 30, and many of the days are already sold out. You can buy tickets here.
