The first digital museum in the world has opened its door to spectators in Japan. Unlike other museums, it encourages people to immerse in the artworks.

People all over the world come into the museum feeling like they are dreaming as they go around to see the interactive art, which makes use of projectors to imitate life-like scenes. Exhibitions in the 100,000 square feet museum vary from scattered trails of petals, the universe against a dark background, and waterfalls.

TeamLab Borderless is a collective artwork that forms one borderless world. The artworks move freely in the room and form connections with people, communicate with other artworks, influence, and mix with each other.

One Of A Kind Experience

Every trip to the Mori Building Digital Art Museum: teamLab Borderless is unique. TeamLab founder Toshiyuki Inoko said that the time in the museum is changing constantly, so the flower forests and seasons are ever-changing. It exists at the moment and guests will never see it the same way again.

The dream-like installation is made possible by 470 high-tech projectors, and 520 computers which create the amazing new world that has never been seen before.

According to Inoko, if an artist can evoke feelings and thoughts into the spectator's experiences, the artworks itself can move freely, too, make connections and relationship with its viewers, and have the same notion of time as the human body.

Takashi Kudo, director of TeamLab communications said that the installation supersedes boundaries. He added that artworks on canvas has boundaries, and sculptures cannot be changed. However, artists can always alter digital art because the digital world does not exist.

The must-visit museum has 50 interactive displays that merge into one another on five different areas. The zones in the "Borderless World" encourage its visitors to make their own path. Here, visitors can touch glowing birds, go through massive waterfalls, and walk in lush forests and fields.

The "borderless" label taken by the museum aims to encourage breaking down barriers between one art and the other, the visitors and the artworks, and one visitor and another.

About TeamLab

TeamLab has pioneered art in the field since it was founded by a number of friends from the University of Tokyo in 2001.

The museum is the first one of its scale in the world and was created by self-proclaimed ultra-technologists, which comprise of computer scientists, designers, programmers, and engineers.

The museum was based on the ideas of teamLab's previous works, which have been showcased in galleries in Istanbul, Sydney, and London.
