Japanese has opened unimaginable Digital Art Museum which is devoted to digital art. The full name of Digital Art Museum is “MORI Building DIGITAL ART MUSEUM teamLab Borderless”. New 10,000 sq.m (107,639 sq. ft) gallery space is located in the Palette Town section of Odaiba, a man-made islet in Tokyo Bay. This museum is 3 floors high and has so much to offer. There are 520 computers and 470 projectors which create whole new world.
The wildly creative, 400-strong Japanese tech-art collaborative teamLab draws legions of art lovers especially those enamored by taking art selfies in dazzling environments.
While many museums do include digital art in special exhibitions, no major art institution has a purpose-built structure with the right bandwidth and physical space to support the tech needs and big crowds of such installations. (Berlin’s similarly-named Digital Art Museum is actually an online showcase with a small, brick-and-mortar gallery in the Mitte neighborhood.) “We’ve wanted to create the exhibition that delivers the borderless artwork world, and figured we needed to establish the museum itself in order to make that happen,” explained a teamLab spokesperson in an email.
Founded by mathematical engineer Toshiyuki Inoko in 2001, teamLab is comprised of artists, programmers, engineers, computer animators, mathematicians and architects who collectively ascribe to the descriptive “ultra-technologists.”
TeamLab adds that building their flagship is a kind of civic initiative to advance Tokyo’s status as a culture capital. “We believe that the museum will lead to an improvement in the charm of Tokyo,” they explain. “We would like to make Tokyo the no.1 city in the world.”
