TeamLAB brings immersive installation to Saatchi

Japanese art collective Chim↑Pom, online platform This is Tomorrow and digital installation group TeamLAB recently got together to curate spaces in the START art fair held at the Saatchi gallery (without a single YBA in sight). 

The fair focussed on bringing niche and independent international galleries to the UK’s attention, and featured Japanese art collective TeamLAB’s UK debut, with interactive digital installation A Flutter of Butterflies Beyond Borders taking up a room of the gallery – a digital artwork that transformed the space into moving clouds of animated butterflies generated in real-time.

The work was created by a team of technologists, including animators, architects and engineers, and shows flowers and butterflies that move across the walls outside of the confines of the frames.

The art world is leaning towards the use of technology to new and innovative interactions. Take a look at Tate Sensorium, an opportunity to taste some priceless paintings, and Space Explorer, a public art takeover transforming Hackney.
