We Believe that the Digital Domain can Expand Art

teamLab believes that the digital domain can expand the capacities of art, and that digital art can create new relationships between people.

Digital Technology Releases Expression from Substance and Creates an Existence with the Possibility for Transformation

Digital technology enables complex detail and freedom for change. Before people started accepting digital technology, information and artistic expression had to be presented in some physical form. Creative expression has existed through static media for most of human history, often using physical objects such as canvas and paint. The advent of digital technology allows human expression to become free from these physical constraints, enabling it to exist independently and evolve freely.

Expansion and Space Adaptability

No longer limited to physical media, digital technology has made it possible for artworks to expand physically. Since digital art can easily expand, it provides us with a greater degree of autonomy within the space. We are now able to manipulate and use much larger spaces, and viewers are able to experience the artwork more directly.

Digital Technology Has Allowed Us to Express Change in Itself

The characteristics of digital technology allow artworks to express the capacity for change much more freely. Viewers, in interaction with their environment, can instigate perpetual change in an artwork.Through an interactive relationship between the viewers and the artwork, viewers become an intrinsic part of that artwork.
