[Menlo Park, CA – December 21, 2015] – teamLab, the renowned Japanese art collective, recognized for challenging and expanding the digital art making practice, and Pace Art + Technology will present Living Digital Space and Future Parks. The large-scale installation will invite participants of all ages to immerse themselves in the multi-room environments spanning 20,000ft² and showcasing 20 digital works. Several of the works on show—including Light Sculpture of Flames and Black Waves in Infinity—will enjoy their international debut while other works—including Flowers and People, Cannot be Controlled but Live Together – A Whole Year per Hour and Flutter of Butterflies Beyond Borders—will be shown in North America for the first time.
Participants will be encouraged to partake in this digital playground for all ages, to witness the visually morphing beauty of the 20 immersive works, to explore the associated pioneering and intellectual concepts of these technologists at work, as well as the mesmerizing innovative capabilities at play. These deeply interactive works are a powerful testament to the advancement of and growing interest in digital art as well as its unique ability to nurture creativity and curiosity through technology.
Toshiyuki Inoko from teamLab says, “We are honored to share some of our most recently created artworks and hope the universality of their themes—creativity, play, exploration, immersion, life, and fluidity—will seep into the broader conscience. We are particularly excited to debut several of these works in Silicon Valley, one of the indisputable heartlands for innovation, bold thinking and risk-taking.
