teamLab: Digitized Kochi Castle
Kochi Castle was built over a period of about 10 years starting in 1601. Despite it being destroyed in a fire, it was rebuilt in the middle of the Edo period and restored to its original form. Kochi Castle is considered an important historical site in Japan, as it is the only castle where the castle tower and nearly all of the central structure remain intact.
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.
Kochi Castle has stood from the Edo period to the present day and remains an important symbol for the city of Kochi. teamLab: Digitized Kochi Castle will transform the castle into an interactive digital art space that changes due to the presence of people. This in turn, enhances the presence of humans, and transforms the relationship between people in the same space with digital art.

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; and National Gallery of Victoria, Melbourne.
