Contrasting conventional ramen savors, Vegan Ramen UZU Tokyo delights noodle lovers with unique recipes soaked in vegetables, edible flowers, green tea, and other natural ingredients. Above all, the captivating artwork space features cutting-edge digital art created by teamLab. TeamLab is an international art collective and interdisciplinary group of artists, programmers, engineers, CG animators, mathematicians, architects, and other specialists that have been navigating the intersection of art, science, technology, and the natural world through their artworks since 2001. It aims to explore the relationship between the self and the world and new perceptions through art, and transcend boundaries in our perception of the world. One of the ways they do this is by allowing our senses of behavior and movement to interact freely with the world around us through vision, color, light, motion, sound and texture—all within the continuity of time. Dynamic teamLab installations have travelled across the globe to New York, San Francisco, Vancouver, London, Paris, Helsinki, Istanbul, Sydney, Beijing, Singapore and other cities.(Excerpt from the text)
