Following the launch of two flame installations in Tokyo, teamLab digital technologists travel to the United States for one of their largest installations to date. The Tokyo-based international art collective brings its renowned immersive experience to the Asian Art Museum’s new Akiko Yamazaki and Jerry Yang pavilion. “teamLab: Continuity” will be the inaugural event of the art exhibition pavilion, the largest in San Francisco.
“At teamLab: Continuity, you will find yourself immersed in a wonderful ecosystem of lush imagery drawn from East Asian nature and art that dynamically evolves around you. Lavish images of inky crows and fluorescent flowers, fluttering butterflies and darting fish make you wander, pause and marvel, ”the museum said in a statement.
The solo exhibition will feature more than a dozen works by teamLab in the 8,500 square foot space, with vivid images dancing between rooms and interacting with each other and with guests in a continuous flow. Although surrounded by thrilling and transforming digital projections, the show focuses on experiencing the natural world and finding your place within it. Through this meeting, the founder of teamLab, Toshiyuki Inoko, encourages visitors to realize that “everything exists in a long, fragile but miraculous continuity of life without borders”.
The show kicks off on July 23, and now you can take a look at the teamLab website and book your tickets to the Asian Art Museum.
