TEAMLAB: TRANSCENDING BOUNDARIES, PACE GALLERY, LONDON 2017

Flowers Bloom on People, Transcending Boundaries, teamLab 2017
Universe of Water Particles, Transcending Boundaries, teamLab 2017
This revolutionary exhibition is the platform for a series of interactive digital installations by teamLab; exploring the notion in the mind of there being no boundaries between ideas and concepts, they are inherently ambiguous and influence and interact with each other. Boundaries are created when ideas and concepts are materialized in the real world. Within the digital domain, art is able to transcend physical and conceptual boundaries. Digital technology allows art to break free from the frame and go beyond the boundaries which separate each other. Elements from one work can fluidly interact with and influence elements of other works exhibited in the same space. In this way boundaries between art pieces dissolve. Universal themes such as ephemeral life, cycles of birth and death, physical interactions and continuous change are explored through multimedia immersive theatre.
