Light Festival in Tadasu no Mori at Shimogamo Shrine, Kyoto Art by teamLab – TOKIO INKARAMI
- The World Heritage Site of the Forest of Tadasu at Shimogamo Shrine -
teamLab’s Digitized Nature art project uses non-material digital art to transform nature into art, without having a physical impact on it.
Tadasu Forest has been turned into an art space with the installations Resisting and Resonating Ovoids and Forest and Floating, Resonating Spheres – Shimogamo Shrine, the road approaching Shimogamo shrine and the tower gate become light artworks that are changed by people’s presence.
Story behind TOKIO INKARAMI's contribution
With the concept of "delivering Japanese beauty and culture to the world," we fuse opposing elements like technology and nature, progress and tradition, or strength and beauty, and cherish the balance between them while we work to create a global beauty culture.
We are now supporting the activities of teamLab, a driving force in the international art scene. We resonate with their conviction that "digital concepts spread beauty."
At IFing Co., Ltd., Dr. Jr. Division, TOKIO INKARAMI, we will always strive to use art to preserve culture and tradition throughout the generations while introducing Japanese aesthetic sensibilities to the world.

teamLab (f. 2001) is art collective, an 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 through art. Digital technology has allowed us to liberate art from the physical and transcend boundaries. We see no boundary between ourselves and nature; one is in the other and the other in one. Everything exists in a long, fragile yet miraculous continuity of life.
Shimogamo Shrine (Kamomioya Shrine)
Located on the southern banks of the Kamo river, Kamomioya-jinja both reflects and inspires Kyoto City. Even its common name is a product of the city. “Shimo-,” meaning lower, and “-gamo,” after the city’s central river, yields the familiar Shimogamo. The creator and guardian of the city, Kamotaketsunomi-no-mikoto, is enshrined in the main sanctuary of the shrine, along his daughter Tamayorihime-no-mikoto, a mythical figure with her own repute. Together these deities welcome and protect all who visit the shrine, from Kyoto and beyond.www.shimogamo-jinja.or.jp/
