TOKYO -- A Tokyo-based creative collective that has wowed crowds as far away as Italy and the U.S. has made a new splash at home, opening its first permanent exhibition of immersive digital art in Japan.
The group, teamLab, on Thursday opened a 10,000-sq.-meter space in the Odaiba area -- a man-made island in Tokyo Bay. Fifty interactive works are spread across five zones, displayed using around 520 computers and 470 projectors. The visuals are beamed onto the floor and walls in otherwise dark rooms, making visitors feel as if they are part of the art. Numerous sensors track visitors' movements, prompting color and design changes.
