teamLab: Digitized Usa Shrine
Usa Shrine stands in the northern part of Oita Prefecture, on the Kunishin Peninsula at the foot of the mountain range. Out of the 40,000-odd shrines dedicated to the Hachiman Gods, this is the main shrine.
The grounds have been designated a National Historic Site, and the main shrine itself a National Treasure.
This exhibition is a part of teamLab’s art project Digitized City. The concept behind the project is that non-material digital art can turn a city into art without physically altering it.
In teamLab: Digitized Usa Shrine, Floating, Resonating Spheres and Resonating Trees are on display. The forest surrounding the grounds and the path leading to the shrine are transformed into an interactive digital art space that changes due to the presence of people.

teamLab (f. 2001) is an art collective, 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, and between oneself and the world through art. Digital technology has allowed art to liberate itself from the physical and transcend boundaries. teamLab sees no boundary between humans and nature, and between oneself and the world; one is in the other and the other in one. Everything exists in a long, fragile yet miraculous, borderless continuity of life.
teamLab’s works are in the permanent collection of the 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 of Helsinki, Finland.
Usa Jingu Shrine is the most important among approximately 40,000 Hachiman shrines around Japan which was established in 725.www.usajinguu.com/
