MORI Building DIGITAL ART MUSEUM: teamLab Borderless is an interactive digital art museum unparalleled anywhere in the world, officially opened June 2018 in Odaiba Palette Town, 1-3-8 Aomi. , Koto-ku, Tokyo. Interactive artworks create a ‘borderless world’ with absolutely no borders separating them from other works. Since there are no boundaries, works are constantly changing and unrepeatable.
Takashi Kudo of teamLab says, ‘The museum itself is an artwork’.
The Museum has about 50 breathtaking digital works in a 10,000m² space, using 520 computers and 470 projectors (in cooperation with EPSON) to create a whole new digital world that has never seen before. Viewers can experience interacting with the surrounding environment (flowers that fly over space or fall, lantern lights, seasonal variations … all occur when you touch them. ..)
MORI Building DIGITAL ART MUSEUM: teamLab Borderless is divided into 5 different areas:
#1. Forest of Lamps
Forest of Lamps is a fairytale space filled with colorful lanterns. When the viewer is standing near a lantern, it will light up and begin to spread around lanterns until all the lights come on. The lanterns are lit up without a fixed sequence that varies according to the location of the viewer.
#2. Athletics Forest
An innovative space that promotes the development of the hippocampus of the brain and enhances spatial awareness. In Athletic Forest, you can jump, climb, move and rotate in a colorful space. You can even draw your own animal, scan it and then it will start swimming or dancing along the walls. Everyone can be an artist here.
#3. Borderless World
The latest interactive digital artwork captivates viewers into a magical world where works change in the presence of human beings and cross the line between man and the world.
#4. Future Park
Future Park is an educational and experiential project area for community creation. TeamLab thinks that people learn about the world through interacting with others and sharing experiences. So through the experience of creating art together with works such as ‘Sketch aquarium’ and ‘Sliding through the fruit field,’ teamLab hopes everyone will have more creative ideas in their daily lives.
#5. En Tea House
En Tea House is where you can enjoy traditional Matcha teas with digital flowers blossoming inside a cup of tea. Flowers will appear when the tea is poured into the cup and disappears when the tea is drunk.
MORI Building DIGITAL ART MUSEUM: teamLab Borderless will surely make you dizzy, dazzled by the colorful digital effects and vibrant 3D images of real life while admiring wonder endless humanity and the great progress of science and technology. The museum is open from 11am to 7pm on weekdays; 11am – 9pm on Fridays and Saturdays; 10am – 7pm on Sundays and holidays.
