For the last several years, digital art collective teamLab has staged impressive installations all around Japan and abroad. Various museums have played host and fans have lined up for hours to immerse themselves in the short-lived digital projections that are often as interactive as they are colorful. Now, teamLab is getting their own museum of digital art thanks to a collaboration between real estate company Mori Building.
This summer, the Mori Building Digital Art Museum will open in Tokyo’s Odaiba district. A 10,000 sq meter (107,640 sq feet) space will be filled with roughly 40 artworks controlled by 520 computers and 470 projectors. The artworks, some which have never before been seen, will blend together throughout the massive space, breaking down the borders between artworks, and between visitors.
