teamLab Planets: A Sense of Connection

Photographs of teamLab’s art installations are plentiful. On Instagram, the various hashtags – #teamlab, #teamlabborderless, #teamlabplanets – have amassed over one million posts. And rightly so: they are colourful and captivating, glimmering dreamlands that exude excitement and wanderlust. As a result, the international art collective’s Planets is high on many Tokyo “must-see” lists. The reality of visiting is likely to exceed expectations. It is as mesmerising as it looks online. Crucially, though, it reaches beyond social media likes and shares, encouraging audiences to think about their place in the world. Visitors are prompted to not only take pictures but to reconnect with their bodies, nature and other human beings. (Excerpt from the text)

'what will NFTs change about art?' - damien hirst, teamlab, & others land at gyre gallery

Tokyo’s Gyre Gallery is launching its latest exhibition, ‘Artistic Experiments in the Age of Hyper-Technological Reproduction ー What Will NFTs Change About Art?’ Running from March 24 to May 21, 2023, the event spotlights the nature of NFTs and the many ways in which their recent boom could alter the art scene as we know it. An NFT, short for Non-Fungible Token, is a unique cryptographic asset driven by blockchain technology; it cannot be replicated or traded and features a clear record of its owner. From Damien Hirst to teamLab and Rafaël Rozendaal, the exhibition gathers an impressive pool of artists and introduces their NFTs in three chapters: Sharing, Aura of the Simulacra, and Transnational Power. Each theme corresponds to the fundamental prerequisites for any artwork: Ownership/Contract, Creation, and Exhibition.

Light show meets opera in Tokyo's 'Turandot'

I have loved teamLab since the minute I first saw their work, because for me, they mix something ancient with something futuristic. You cannot see this on Netflix. You cannot get this on social media. It is a three-dimensional, immersive, operatic experience where both the sound and the lasers and the projection and the light are vibrating through you live. It’s an immersive experience. It’s totally different.(Excerpt from the text)
