teamLab – Chelsea NYC

teamLab in NYC

If you are interested in the intersection of art and technology, then make Pace Gallery in Chelsea your first stop for the first ever US exhibition of the Japanese collective teamLab. Do not let collective deceive you. This group led by Toshiyuki Inoko is made up of over 300 “ultra-technologists;” a company, agency, and innovation lab all in one, teamLab works on dozens of projects at a time that include animation, sound, internet, interactive and immersive installations. At the exhibition’s opening, Inoko declared, “I just like the digital better than the phsyical.”

The works in the installation are undeniably Japanese, with influences from classical Japanese art, Japanese gardens, the Edo period, and Ukiyo-e woodblock prints, all the way to modern day anime. At the same time, as you lose yourself spinning through their 3D worlds or flying through the universe with the crows, you can’t help but feel like you are looking at the future of art.

teamLab’s exhibition Ultra Subjective Space is open until August 15, 2004 at Pace Gallery’s 508 & 510 West 25th Street locations.
