teamLab Japanese art collective’s awe-inspiring art is coming to Melbourne

Festivals, Film & Art, Melbourne, Play / 22 July 2019

Get ready have your mind blown by famous Japanese art collective teamLab with their tech-art installation Reversible Rotation at this year’s Melbourne International Arts Festival.

teamLab are a collective of ultra technologists that are something of an anomaly in the art world. They bring their respective talents in engineering, animation, mathematics, architecture and programming together to create some utterly awe-inspiring art. And if you’ve been dreaming of seeing their artworks in Tokyo, don’t book your flight just yet because they’re bringing their it to Melbourne!

The teamLab immersive art installation is made up of four screens with images that will move with your body in a way that makes you feel like you’re floating in a parallel universe of waves of brilliant, beautiful light.

The motion of hundreds of thousands of digital particles are simulated and then projected as cascades of shimmering luminescence, but to a viewer the effect is that of floating in a wave made of light. Rivers and sunbeams, a human hand applying ink to paper, the natural passing of time—these are the subjects that propel forward these pioneers of tomorrow.

Running from 5 October to 2 November 2019 at Tolarno Galleries as part of Melbourne International Arts Festival, this is a FREE event and so make sure you get utterly, deeply immersed in it.
