teamLab: Digitized Hiroshima Castle
Hiroshima Castle is one of Japan’s top three flatland castles originally built in 1589.
This exhibition is a part of teamLab’s Digitized City art project. The concept behind the project is that non-material digital technology can turn a city into art without physically altering it.
teamLab: Digitized Hiroshima Castle, celebrates 400 years since Lord Asano resided in the castle. An iconic symbol of the city, Hiroshima Castle will be turned into an interactive art space which changes due to the interaction of people in the space.

teamLab (f. 2001) is an art collective, interdisciplinary group of ultratechnologists whose collaborative practice seeks to navigate the confluence of art, science, technology, design and the natural world. Various specialists such as artists, programmers, engineers, CG animators, mathematicians and architects form teamLab.teamlab.art
teamLab aims to explore a new relationship between humans and nature, and between oneself and the world through art. Digital technology has allowed art to liberate itself from the physical and transcend boundaries. teamLab sees no boundary between humans and nature, and between oneself and the world; one is in the other and the other in one. Everything exists in a long, fragile yet miraculous, borderless continuity of life.
teamLab’s works are in the permanent collection of the Art Gallery of New South Wales, Sydney; Art Gallery of South Australia, Adelaide; Asian Art Museum, San Francisco; Asia Society Museum, New York; Borusan Contemporary Art Collection, Istanbul; National Gallery of Victoria, Melbourne; and Amos Rex of Helsinki, Finland.
