TOKYO -- Artworks are exhibited almost anywhere these days. Not only in upscale museums and galleries but also online, and in streets and outdoor parks. But whoever would have thought of enjoying art in a sauna?
Japanese creative collective teamLab opened a tent last week which houses sauna rooms and art installations in downtown Tokyo. A "spectacular experiment," as one teamLab member described it, an attempt to allow visitors to immerse themselves in the artworks on display after being elevated to the highest mental state by first experiencing a hot sauna followed by a cold shower.
