Nature Becomes Art

Digital technologies such as sensing, networks, light, and sound, are non-material and have no physical impact on the environment. By using such non-material digital technologies, nature can be turned into living art without harming it. Nature itself becomes art. Nature's shapes and textures as well as the changes wrought over time represent overwhelming information beyond what humans can comprehend. By incorporating such elements, teamLab believes that artworks have the potential to give people new cognitive insights into the world, which they would not conceive of independently.
