teamLab: Living Digital Space and Future Parks

2016.2.06(Sat) - 12.18(Sun)
Pace Art+Technology Menlo Park, California

Living Digital Space

teamLab’s immersive installations explore alternative forms of perception using their concept of Ultra Subjective Space, a sense of spatial awareness developed from representations in the visual art of pre-modern Japan. This unique multidimensional perspective found in traditional Japanese painting incorporates time into spatial representation and acknowledges the movements of the viewer. Fusing art and technology, the natural imagery in these installations undergo transformations based on the actions of the viewer, creating a connection between physical and virtual life that encourages new ways of examining the surrounding natural world. This element of responsiveness to movement and touch is implicit of an individual’s autonomy as well as the balance that is sustained between man and nature. teamLab celebrates the agency of movement as both an individual and communal action through aesthetic reactions.

Future Parks

teamLab’s interactive digital playground, titled “teamLab Islands: Learn and Play! Future Parks,” focuses on promoting collaborative experiences for children through creativity and play. The interactive activities that make up this digital playground use technology to cultivate individual creative freedom within cooperative environments, an experience that teamLab refers to as “co-creation.” The exhibition in Menlo Park will feature seven different attractions that promote this shared sense of creativity through immersive digital environments. With participation as the foundational element of each work, children are encouraged to engage with the works and with each other, creating visual results as part of a larger team. Highlighting technology’s capacity to influence the relationships between people and to foster learning, teamLab Islands: Learn and Play! Future Parks emphasizes pattern recognition, causal relationships, tactile learning, spatial perception, and the importance of co-creation.

Introduction
The rapid rise of teamLab to global attention in recent years is hardly a mystery. The collective’s computer-generated artworks and installations have been surprising and captivating audiences everywhere since first capturing the notice of the international art world with their Taiwan exhibition “We are the Future” in 2011. Three characteristics are common to almost every one of their projects. The first is a high premium placed on interactivity; through the skillful use of sensors activated by motion, touch, or shadow, teamLab allows its viewers to become more than mere onlookers, allowing them to shape how a work develops in concert with other viewers. As a result teamLab’s works unfold unpredictably, with no two experiences of a piece ever quite repeated. The second is the synesthetic effect of many of their installations, engendered by a rich array of acoustical and occasionally even olfactory effects. A third trait consistent to all of teamLab’s works is a strong emphasis placed on the aesthetic appeal of their “ultra-technological” worlds. This appeal is developed through the abundant use of natural motifs, vivid colors, references to traditional Japanese cultural practice, and collaborations with leading Japanese artists such as the calligrapher Shishū and composer Takahashi Hideaki.

ARTISTA
teamLab
teamLab (f. 2001) is an international art collective, an interdisciplinary group of various specialists such as artists, programmers, engineers, CG animators, mathematicians and architects whose collaborative practice seeks to navigate the confluence of art, science, technology, and the natural world.

teamLab aims to explore the relationship between the self and the world and new perceptions through art. In order to understand the world around them, people separate it into independent entities with perceived boundaries between them. teamLab seeks to transcend these boundaries in our perception of the world, of the relationship between the self and the world, and of the continuity of time. Everything exists in a long, fragile yet miraculous, borderless continuity of life.

teamLab’s works are in the permanent collection of the Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles; 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, Helsinki.

teamLab is represented by Pace Gallery, Martin Browne Contemporary and Ikkan Art.
