Autumn Arrives at teamLab’s Art Exhibition at Mifuneyama Rakuen in Saga Prefecture

04.September.2018 | SPOT

Digitized Nature is a project organized by the creative group teamLab under the slogan ‘Nature Becomes Art’ that makes use of extraordinary digital art. teamLab notes how nature has formed over a very long period of time, and that we can gain a sense of the continuity of nature by turning it into art through forms like rocks, caves and forests.

teamLab are currently showcasing their ‘earth music & ecology’ exhibition titled ‘A Forest Where Gods Live’ at Mifuneyama Rakuen. One of the pieces there is called ‘Forest and Spiral of Resonating Lamps in the Forest,’ which has just been updated to incorporate the autumnal colours known as kasane no irome.

 

Before the modern era of Japan, kasane no irome, or ‘layered colours,’ were autumn colours created in silk. They were a complex combination of front and back colours (silk during this time was so thin that the material was transparent, creating complicated colors), overlapping colour gradations, and combinations of warp and weft.

The updated exhibition, entitled Forest and Spiral of Resonating Lamps in the Forest – One Stroke, Autumn Mountain, makes use of these colours with lamps which fade in and out 8 autumn-time colours including reds and greens.


The group’s ‘earth music & ecology: A Forest Where Gods Live’ was packed up by news platforms around the world including CNN and even came top designboom’s Top 10 Art Installations of 2017. This year marks the 4th run of the exhibition which takes the form of a huge garden spanning 500,000 square meters. It features new digital art installations as well as the old ones which change and manipulate as people walk by them. Mifuneyama Rakuen first opened in 1845 and is a nationally registered place of scenic beauty.

 

Witness the worlds of technology and nature collide with your own eyes.

  • teamLab to Bring Digital Art Exhibition to GINZA SIX Rooftop

    30.June.2018 | SPOT

    • Ultratechnologists teamLab are taking their Resonating Trees digital art masterpiece to the rooftop garden of GINZA SIX, the biggest shopping complex in Ginza. It will run from August 1 to September 2.

     

    The theme of the work is “Digitized Nature.” Taking place in a 56-meter roof garden, this digital art space combines sound and lights which change and transform as people walk by. This is the first time for this piece to be held in the city and offers people a dreamy experience with the nightscape of Ginza’s streets and buildings as the backdrop.

    The trees lining the garden will be individually lit up with bright and colourful lights. It will seem as if the trees are resonating with each other as they fade in and out of different colour tones. As watchers walk by, the colour tone of a tree will change and transmit to the trees next to them. The changing of colours signifies the presence of people, and in turn teamLab hopes people will become aware of the existence of other living things in the same space.

     

    Experience the latest in cutting-edge digital art technology at GINZA SIX.
