Travelin’ Kup Kollar goes to Tokyo, Japan – Tully’s Coffee & teamLab's DMM Planets Art
Colleen, “Iced coffee, chocolate donut. The basics!”
“Today, my last full day 😢, a brief stop at Tully's Coffee on my way to see teamLab's DMM Planets project in Odaiba.”
DMM.PLANETS Art by teamLab is housed in a 3000 square meter building. The many digital works are interactive so attendees can explore and immerse themselves into each art piece.
This is the "Wander through the Crystal Universe" which is around 20 m x 20 m x 4 m. From their website:
“This artwork uses accumulated light points to create a sculptural body, similar to the way distinct dots of color form an image in a pointillist painting. In Crystal Universe, the particles of light are digitally controlled, and change based on the viewer’s interactivity with the work. The result is an installation consisting of an accumulation of lights, forming a sculpture that expresses the universe.”
“Viewers are invited to enter and walk around within the three-dimensional light space. This movement affects the light particles and creates changes in the installation. Viewers can also interact with the work by using their smartphones to select elements that make up the Crystal Universe.”
Colleen and her friend are enjoying “The Soft Black Hole” art piece. Their bodies change the space and the space changes the bodies around them. Described on their website:
“All that you can touch becomes a space so soft it seems as if you could sink into it. The darkness of the space eliminates the borders of floors, walls, and ceilings. As visitors enter the space of the artwork, the space itself is influenced and changed by the weight of their bodies.”
Attendees use all their five senses when viewing these art pieces!
