All of these unique and interesting artwork exhibitions form a single, borderless world. These artworks interact with and influence other exhibitions, in what seems like a form of communication. Explore this amazing world and discover something new which you've never seen before.
What is teamLab?
teamLab is an international collaboration that began its activities in 2001. It was formed from various specialists such as artists, programmers, engineers, animators, architects, and more.
Through the creation of this collective, they started to transcend the boundaries of science, technology, design, and art, and began offering solutions for these things.
teamlab Borderless Exhibits
teamLab Borderless is a world created of 5 unique concepts. These are "Borderless World", "Athletics Forest", "Future Park", "Forest of Lamps", and "EN TEA HOUSE".
You are able to appreciate various uniquely-themed artworks that are generated in realtime by a computer program. Each and every one of these works is something that can only be seen a single time.
For example, "Crystal World" sees schools of fish and butterflies created using three-dimensional lights. The school of fish move like a singular lifeform in unison and the butterflies fly freely. You're sure to share your feeling of wonderment with others within this ever-changing world.
This is a zone that has mountains, valleys, space, and much more. Walk, jump, and climb through it freely with the various experiences available.
This zone will naturally increase your spatial awareness through your flying and jumping.
Let your drawings and imagination run free, play with the dwarves creating various works, and experience a brand new world made of ever-evolving new thoughts and experiences.
Through going down the slide you can enter a world of fruits. Thanks to your sliding, the fruits are able to mature further, an experience that makes you want to slide down again and again.
Forst of Lamps
The endless lamps on the ceiling reflect on the floor beneath your feet, almost engulfing your entire body, a surely wondrous and mystical sight.
If you stop and stare, the lights in front of you and nearby glitter and glimmer. Each and every lamp, similar to a sequence, begins to light up one after another. The scene of the lamps lighting up one by one reminds you of miracles, creating a spectacular background.
EN TEA HOUSE
Tea and teacups, art interweaved, experience the "beauty of Japan" with these works.
We would especially love for you to take a visit to the cafe, order a drink (separate fee), and experience the tea in the bowl becoming an infinite world in which the flowers continue to bloom. Flowers will bloom in the teacup your drink arrives in.
Flowers bloom infinitely as long as there is tea.
