Body Active Perception


Physical Perception of Art in an Active Bodily State

Many art forms are perceived by the human body in a static state. In other words, people understand art with just their minds, leaving behind awareness of their bodies. At a museum, we do not see people trying to understand an artwork while dancing or running, nor do we see them appreciating art while eating.
However, humans comprehend the world by walking around, expand their minds by dancing, and become aware of life by eating. Humans grasp the world and think with their bodies more than we think.

teamLab explores how people can perceive artworks and their world in an active state without stopping their body, in other words, exploring physically perceptual experiences.
