TeamLab made it to the Top 10 Large-Scale Art Exhibitions of 2018 and it’s no surprise that the art collective keeps coming up with these mesmerizing creations that leave one utterly stunned! TeamLab operates with an amazing exploration of the correlation between art, science, technology, design and the natural world.
This time the group took their creative minds on a journey to a Hotel’s reception of Mifuneyama Rakuen in Kyushu, Japan. With this creative and artistic design, TeamLab aimed to add cool/winter colors to a few earthy tones contrasting with the outside view of a forest.
Named as the ‘forest and spiral of resonating lamps in the forest – one stroke, snow, and winter camellia’, this art exhibition had three predominantly chosen colors – ice, layered ice, and camellia – the traditional practice used in this contemporary art is known as the kasane no irome, which literally means ‘layers of colors’. These color schemes were used to define the layering, colors, and order of Heian-era robes worn at court.
TeamLab‘s overlapping manifestation of colors and modern art reacts to guests and staff. It’s truly incredible to see the lamps shining brighter and emitting a specific color when people get close to them.
This art exhibition was so thoroughly thought of that the interaction is simply surreal! When someone gets close to it the color is spread continuously onto the two next lamps that were near the lamp that initially reacted to the interaction, and it goes on and on until it reaches the last lamp and all the colors fade and return to the original point. But, while this is all happening, if someone interacts with another lamp, the two emitting colors meet and merge into a combination of both tones.

The way that the lamps are organized is mathematically determined in a way that assures that the light resonating from the lamps cannot be predicted. Go get surprised by the wonders of this group filled with great contemporary artists and visit this exhibition during the winter season from the 10th of December until the 19th of February. I Lobo You can’t get enough of TeamLab‘s creations!
