Tokyo’s first dig­i­tal mu­seum by TeamLab

Time Out (Sydney) - - CITY LIFE -

Ja­panese fans of In­sta­gram-wor­thy and dig­i­tal art pieces have some­thing to look for­ward to: TeamLab, the self-styled ‘ul­tra-tech­nol­o­gists’, are open­ing their own mu­seum on Odaiba, Tokyo this sum­mer. The peo­ple be­hind the Learn & Play Fu­ture Park at the Pow­er­house here in Syd­ney and a very pop­u­lar 2016 in­stal­la­tion with e-com­merce busi­ness DMM (pic­tured be­low) will get to do what­ever they want with a 10,000sqm space in­side the huge Odaiba Pal­ette Town devel­op­ment, cour­tesy of the Mori Build­ing group. The name is a bit of a mouth­ful, though. But we think Mori Build­ing Dig­i­tal Art Mu­seum TeamLab Border­less will even­tu­ally be known as ‘TeamLab Mu­seum’ col­lo­qui­ally. So far, it looks like TeamLab will be stick­ing to their dig­i­tal roots, with con­stantly chang­ing, in­ter­ac­tive in­stal­la­tions that span the en­tire space and in­cor­po­rate touches of na­ture, such as their water­fall pro­jec­tion in Shikoku and a flow­ery dig­i­talised restau­rant in Ginza. Ex­act de­tails are sparse at the mo­ment, but more will be re­vealed in months to come. Kirsty Bouw­ers, Time Out Tokyo
