teamLab: Past, Present, and Future
Dr. Yukio Lippit, Harvard University
The rapid rise of teamLab to global attention in recent years is hardly a mystery. The collective’s computer-generated artworks and installations have been surprising and captivating audiences everywhere since first capturing the notice of the international art world with their Taiwan exhibition “We are the Future” in 2011. Three characteristics are common to almost every one of their projects. The first is a high premium placed on interactivity; through the skillful use of sensors activated by motion, touch, or shadow, teamLab allows its viewers to become more than mere onlookers, allowing them to shape how a work develops in concert with other viewers. As a result teamLab’s works unfold unpredictably, with no two experiences of a piece ever quite repeated. The second is the synesthetic effect of many of their installations, engendered by a rich array of acoustical and occasionally even olfactory effects. A third trait consistent to all of teamLab’s works is a strong emphasis placed on the aesthetic appeal of their “ultra-technological” worlds. This appeal is developed through the abundant use of natural motifs, vivid colors, references to traditional Japanese cultural practice, and collaborations with leading Japanese artists such as the calligrapher Shishū and composer Takahashi Hideaki.
