Body Active Perception
Physical Perception of Art in an Active Bodily State
Most art forms are perceived by the human body in a static state. In other words, people try to comprehend art with just their minds, leaving behind awareness of their bodies. At a museum, we do not see anyone trying to comprehend an artwork while dancing or running, nor do we see people appreciating art while eating.
However, humans understand 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.
teamLab explores full body perception and experiences – that is, we encourage people to recognize the artwork world while their bodies are in motion without forcing them to stand still.
